Tomorrow is the first day of summer and what better way to celebrate it than to make new cloth napkins?! I have been on a cloth napkin kick lately since we seem to go through paper napkins like water in a bucket with a hole! Now, I know some folks can make an argument over paper versus cloth but since I am washing towels anyway, I figure those cloth napkins are not going to take up much space. And, besides, who doesn't love a nice cloth napkin?
On our 10th anniversary we went to Hawaii and I bought this fabric around that time. I had originally thought I would make D a pillowcase but never got around to making one. I thought this was perfect for summer napkins! Who wouldn't want to be in Hawaii?!! And, it did use some of my stash that "he who does not understand why I have so much fabric" keeps pointing out to me. *grins*
If you want to make your own cloth napkins, there are many excellent tutorials on the web. Here are a few that I like:
I have plans to make lots more napkins this summer. For today, I am linking to Heidi's Make Do and Mend Challenge. Hope to see you there!
