I have been wanting to get the old sewing machine out all summer, but the days keep ticking away. This morning it was raining and cloudy and I decided today would be the day!
I have been wanting new table linens. The ones I really liked are more than I want to pay for 4 napkins, since I know it is, maybe, $12.00 worth of material, and I may be being too generous.
I have yards and yards of material left over from an old Ralph Lauren duvet I inherited years ago. You may recognize the material from here and here. Do you remember those Carolina Summer days when I went on that crafts binge, and made my kids do it too? Ah! Memories!
I decided that perhaps I could try my hand at making linen table napkins. Also known as, Old-Hand-Me-Down-Duvet table napkins.
So here is my final product. They are a bit rough around the edges. But they will work. And I got to get my trusty sewing machine out of the box where it has been sitting forlornly in a closet for a very long time.
La Vida Dulce!
