We don’t buy paper napkins. In our quest to decrease our paper usage, paper napkins were removed from our monthly grocery list with me promising to sew fabric napkins….. But, I could not settle on fabric. So during my period of indecision, we had greasy hands and dirty faces…. until I purchased a seamstress’ scrap fabric. Combined with the organic cotton crib sheet that I will not need anytime soon, I was ready to attack this easy, but neglected project. Now it felt like the possibilities were endless and I finally sewed a few sets. Here is one of my smaller napkins which are perfect for little mouths. They are double sided with one of the sides being organic cotton.
I feel good about this project because I was able to repurpose scraps into something useful. Practical upcycling! Anything in your home or office that can be repurposed / upcycled into something new.
