I’ve got a bunch of scrap fabric and I’ve been meaning to make some napkins for a long time. I decided that I would use the scraps to make napkins for everyday use and then buy some cute fabric to use for when we’ve got company.
But today, I didn’t feel like making a ton of napkins, so I decided instead to make a few smaller napkins to throw in the girls’ lunch boxes every day.
I started with some of the cuter scraps that I have.
Then I followed this easy tutorial. I wanted small napkins for the girls, so I cut out 7″ squares instead of the size she called for.
Brian saw me and asked what I was making. When I told him he said “Awww, let me get a picture of you sewing!” Except I wasn’t sewing at that particular moment, so he made me pretend like I was. I think it’s an award winning performance, don’t you? Aside from the fact that there is no actual fabric in the machine…
And here’s what I ended up with.
The perfect size for little hands and mouths. 🙂
Please try to avert your eyes away from the crookedness of my stitches. I’ve got to be the world’s worst seamstress! And I do realize that if I was a real seamstress I would have changed the thread colors so that you couldn’t see the stitches, but for little lunchbox napkins that seemed like too much work. 🙂
Now I just need to get the larger size napkins made for us big people and I can cease the buying of paper ones FOREVAH!!
And now a question for you. I can NEVER cut straight lines when I’m cutting fabric. NEH-HEH-HEVER! So, can you tell me what the secret is? Or is there some fancy gadget out there that I need to get?
