Today we got together with another family to work on some homemaking skills. We got started with some cloth napkins. I love cloth napkins!!! They really add a touch of class to any table and they save money.
This is my sweet friend Robin working on her napkins. My other friend Trish gave me a serger several months ago and I have just now pulled it out to work with it. LET ME TELL YA…
I LOVE IT!!!
Even though we had 2 other sewing machines there, all anyone wanted to use was the serger…go figure! So we had to take turns.
Then we ran out of thread, and sent the girls to the store…did you know running for thread requires a stop for a slushy at Sonic?
Emma getting lots of lovin’.
This was a good start. Next we time we’ll make seasonal napkins.
We made some smaller ones for the smaller faces and hands.
Making cloth napkins are a great project for beginning sewers. Use 100% cotton fabric; fold and press a small hem down and sew. If you have a serger just cut your fabric and go for it! :o)
I cut my napkins to be about 14-15" square.
