Cloth napkins

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.

    These are lovely! They will look so good at the dinner table with the lamp!
