2. Install one turn unit, centered and 1" in from one shaped end of a Main Fabric napkin ring piece. Add a square of sew-in foam under the washer to help support the hardware (round the corners of the foam, if desired). For easier topstitching in a later step, press the turn unit prongs toward the center of the hardware.

6. Following the shaped piece, topstitch along the aligned raw edges of the napkin ring with 1/8" allowance, using a stitch length of 3.5-4.0mm. 

Try using a zipper foot or teflon foot for smoother stitching. Topstitch carefully near the installed hardware.
