Trim the napkin square. Napkins are usually hemmed with a very narrow hem, luncheon napkins sometimes with wide ones.

The Damask Hem: Fold the hem the desired width (on this small napkin one-half inch) and then turn the hem back flat to the cloth and crease. The edge of the hem and the crease thus formed are overhanded together with fine even stitches. When laundered this irons perfectly smooth. This method of hemming is used only on cloth too heavy to flat hem nicely.
