I visited a friend a while back and noticed she had handmade cotton napkins for us to use. She said she made them and notices she uses way less paper towels. I liked that feel good factor of NOT wasting and decided to use up some extra fabric that I had lying around. Again, I put my Serger to good use. I hope to roll over the edge once and straight stitch it to the backside for a cleaner edge.
The fabric was cut 14.5 inches square. This yields exactly three cloth napkins from selvage to selvage :-)
I leave a stack of them neatly folded on my kitchen sink window sill for easy access. We use them instead of tea towels too. These wash easier and dry faster too.
