I bought (really expensive!) linen , 80/120 thread count and cut them up to make table napkins. Just a simple crochet edging and monogrammed with the couple's common initial.

This was surprisingly simple but took the better part of two days to make half a dozen napkins.

Please let me know what you guys think. I might actually include these as an item in a craft bazaar or something, I really think they're quite pretty. But of course, I'm biased hehheheh!

Those are really pretty, you did a great job on them. I wish I could make something that pretty.

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

I love them...I have started embroidering napkins for my family, we have our everyday ones and our special ones.  They are a great way to save a little trash from ending up in the landfill....
