A couple weeks ago I found a darling fruit basket on sale at ShopKo for $4.99. I wanted one just like this to keep our cloth napkins in so I was very happy when I found exactly what I was looking for. Even more so that it was on sale.
After placing the napkins in the basket it looked so cute I decided it needed to be on the shelf of our cabinet in the dining room. It looks great sitting there too. Do you use cloth napkins or do you prefer paper?
For the longest time I used paper napkins but I can't say I loved them. I decided a little more than a year ago to make my own cloth napkins and use them instead. I definitely can say I LOVE my cloth napkins.
I made them with fabric from my stash using up a bunch of extras pieces I had. They are made from two pieces stitched together so they are extra durable and absorbent. The cotton blend fabrics I used make them easy to launder and they come out relatively wrinkle free.
I made some using fall themed fabric which are perfect for our Thanksgiving table, a Hawaiian print for BBQs on the deck, and calico prints for everyday use. This year I hope to make some out of Christmas print fabric.
Want to make some like I did? This is how Idid it.
