A Little Coordination, Please...

Daily Thing: Napkins.

I'm trying to be a little more environmentally conscious, and one thing that has been on my agenda for a while is the switch to more frequent use of cloth napkins. I looked over my stash and decided on several fabrics that will coordinate. One reason they need to coordinate is because most of my stash consists of 1/2 yard (or smaller!) pieces and only two15-16" napkins can be cut from one half yard.

No problem with that because for daily use, we only need 2. On the other hand, if I have 2 each out of coordinating fabrics, the table could still look nice for company. So I now have two new napkins out of this material. With more to come.
I've been trying to catch up on blog reading, but gosh, I never quite seem to succeed!


  1. such a cute, simple and rewarding project! I need to make some of these for our table. Love the fabric that you used!

  2. rebekah - Thanks! I'm eager to get the whole set done...and maybe a table runner, too.

  3. I'm a total fanatic about cloth napkins! Not only is it a 'good thing' for the environment but I enjoy how it dresses up the dining experience. I love the fabric you chose.

  4. Kim - They do make such a difference in appearances! These aren't the colors I would have chosen if I'd bought fabric for this purpose (I would have gone brighter, springier), but I do like it.


Good to hear from you!
