Inspired (as always) by Alicen at Sticks & Stitches I decided to make cloth napkins for the house. These are pretty small, maybe 10 inches x 10 inches, so they fit in my napkin holder and are perfect for daily use. I did mine a cheater way by just cutting the squares, ironing in 1/4 inch hems and zig-zagging them down. I found that if I run along the hem catching the raw edge in the stitch they wash and wear just fine for around the house. I made 16 in total, which seems to be enough if you just keep tossing them in every time you do a load of laundry, though I am planning on making a bunch more because they are so fun. I think we may go totally European and get some sweet napkin rings...bet we can make those too.
