I bought this napkin holder to sell... But now I'm not selling it. I had a free hour to sew, Sam was watching Luna and I made these napkins. Sam asked why I was choosing to make napkins, and not the 5 other things I should have been working on. Like gifts, or stuff for farm chicks. Well, sometimes I just need some instant gratification. I pictured pulling cloth napkins out of this holder and I just had to do it right then. I love this fabric. It was one of my favorites and I was going to hoard it. I'm so happy I decided to use it to make some napkins. This way I'll get to see the happy fabric every day. I think I'm going to be making more from my favorite fabric. I must admit the first time I have really messy hands I may not want to wipe for fear of staining these. I'm sure I'll get over that soon. And that is why I need to make many more. If one is ruined no big deal. Practical sewing is so satisfying. I love the little star on it, it makes it a little homier than just the plain jane ones.
I also made a few bibs for friends with this fabric. Baby items are also satisfying to make- quick, easy, and oh so cute.
Tell me, are you making anything lately? And what are some good fun easy projects to use up your favorite fabrics?
