I wanted my cocktail napkins to be 8 inches square. I cut my fabric to 10 inches. Note: the measurements must be perfect for the mitered corners to work. I learned this after spending longer than I'd care to admit trying to get it right. Rather than cutting and folding the fabric (as the tutorial suggests) to get the mitered corner, I did some wacky sewing trick that I may or may not be able to repeat. It was easier for me, considering that my measurements weren't perfect.
