I made this set of 4 superhero cloth napkins.  My family and I had dinner with some good friends last night, and I surprised them with these cloth napkins as a gift.  There was no special occasion, and we normally don't exchange gifts, but they love comic books are were thrilled with their "just because" present.  I know they use cloth napkins on a daily basis, so these should see a lot of use.

It's two strands of a silvery-blue embroidery thread on blue linen napkins.  Mostly stem stitch, as that's my favorite, with some backstitch and satin stitch as needed.  Spiderman is my personal favorite.

Thanks for looking!

That is super cool (geddit? super? Smiley sorry). I love the white on blue and how different, but cohesive, they look.

These are awesome!!!!!! Part of me hopes that your friends use them and love them, and part of me hopes they use them for decoration instead of getting them dirty Smiley Nice work

That is super cool (geddit? super? Smiley sorry).
I laughed harder than I'd like to admit at that Tongue

Thank you, spidermom!  Seems Spiderman is right up your alley.   Cheesy

By the way, the patterns are just random coloring pages I found online.  That's why the style of artwork is so different for each one.

I totally love them. They all look wonderful. The detail on Spider-Man's suit is impressive.
