Then fold the first layer towards the top again. The triangle that you made previously would now be hidden. Then proceed to fold the next layer towards the top but first inert the top beneath the first layer.

Extra Tips

  • If your napkin isn't stiff enough, try using paper napkins instead. You can also starch the cloth napkin to make it stiff. First, wash the cloth napkin as you usually do. Spray it with ready-made starch spray or make your own by mixing starch and water. Evenly spray coat the napkin with starch and then iron the napkin on an ironing board. By the way, if you're planning to starch the napkin, make sure that it's cotton or linen.
  • Have fun when you learn a new fold. And when you are folding, relax and enjoy the experience.
  • Execution is important - it's easy but it needs to be done with care and precision.
