::quickly adding napkins and basket to "to craft" list..::

I love the pear fabric! I've been eyeing it for some time, and I think napkins are the perfect medium for it!  Nice job!

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

You know, I've been thinking about doing this for a while, but I don't know... It seems like the napkins would get stained something awful. Would be perfect for wiping up water stains tho... I'm going to try this and see if it works... any tips Huh

I've found for stains that the Dreft spray (actually for baby clothes) works really well.  Otherwise, I just go with the fact that the napkins are going to get stained and when they get too stained, I move them to be used as rags for cleaning.

what a clever idea to make a basket to put them in! What size did you make the napkins? I like a smaller size, but dh likes great big ones.

Like everyone else has said...I love the fabric! I used the yellow and black pear print for a bag, but haven't seen the blue and green. It would match perfect in my kitchen!
Your edge seam finishes look great!

I made my napkins 12X12.  so far no complaints from my husband on them not being big enough and he is maybe the pickiest man in the whole world  Cheesy
