Americans use over 2,000 napkins a year!  I made these fabric napkins to do my part to help the environment.  I hope you like them.  I also made patchwork coasters to match the sushi napkins.  The napkins have the same pink polka dot fabric on the back.  Cheesy Thanks for looking!

I loveee the trees & owls! I've been wanting to make cloth napkins, but I can't find a type of fabric that I like the feel of to use as a napkin. Not that I've been trying all that hard. I've just been searching my personal stash.

It was hard to cut up this fabric because it was so cute.  Thanks everyone for the compliments!

Nice job.  We've started using cloth napkins in an effort to cut down on paper consumption, too.  Yours are quite colorful.  I like them.

Cotton and linen make the best napkins.  The trick is when you wash them to not use fabric softener because this will cause less liquid absorption.

Ravengirl, I love the sushi napkins.  I have always had a small lust for that print lol.

We went to cloth napkins last year, we didn't just cut down our use of paper towels and paper napkins but we totally eliminated them from out house.  We don't miss them at all.

These are adorable! I, too, love the owls. Now I'm inspired to make my own.

This is good to know. Thanks for the tip about the fabric softener! I never would have thought of that. My napkins would have been sad...
