I spotted this snowman fabric at JoAnn a few weeks ago, but left it on the shelf.  Then when I went back I saw that it was on sale for, get this, 70% off + 20% off!  What!?  Plus I got the end-of-bolt discount for another half yard or so. Oh yeah! 

Anyway, enough victory dancing. Ahem.  I like to make my cloth napkins two-sided so I don't have to press hems or have the backside of the print show. So I found this plaid with the same greens and a red in it, also double discounted.



I made a dozen and it's a good thing, because we have 4 other couples coming over for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres the Saturday after xmas. WOO!

Wow. What a great $ score! And wonderful job on the napkins, too. I like your idea. I hate pressing up the hems, too. I have a hemming tool/foot that fits one of my machines, but I have never really learned to use it well. I will have to try your idea next time I make some of these. Yours are really cute. Just enough to be holiday theme, but seasonal for additional winter-time things. You are just too talented, lady!

These are so fun! I am a noob sewer -- what kind of fabric is best for making napkins?
