When life hands you granny fabric, make napkins!!!
Awhile back, I was given a stack of quilting fabric that was more Grandma Walton than Sage & Simple. I struggled with what to do with this fabric, and then it struck me… napkins!!!
1) Cut fabric squares of 17″ x 17″ (or whatever size makes you happy). This left me with some smaller pieces that I will make into snack napkins to use with tea, dessert, etc.
2) Iron in a 1/4″ hem on all 4 sides, then another 1/4″ hem to tuck in the raw edge.
3) Miter the corners. You can also leave them square, but I have perfectionist tendencies so I mitered mine :)
4) Sew all the way around the edge. Voila!
Not only have I given life to this not so hip looking fabric, but these cloth napkins are going to save trees and save me money! Finding another way of beating that 25% VAT makes me happy :)
P.S. Happy new year!
