I mentioned that these would be done by the end of the weekend, but obviously that was wishful thinking. I had a bit of a procrastination problem. I’m not sure if this happens to anyone else — for some reason, knowing that I had to finish these for an actual order made me want to sew anything but. In any case, it took me until midnight last night to get them all completed, but I’m pleased to say that they’re done and they’re lovely!
I used some fun summery fabrics by Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry and Jennifer Paganelli with some corresponding vintage rick rack (my stash is running low now… must do something about that!)
These green striped rick rack napkins and the pink polka dot napkins are the napkins for the custom order and the remaining three sets are now available at the store. Hopefully they’ll sell quickly, although I wouldn’t mind taking back the Amy Butler Nouveau Trees napkins for my own personal use!
I used a variety of white lining fabric for these sets – I was trying to find the best fabric for these napkins and I’m pleased to say that I’ve come up with one that I like very much. It’s a sateen white cotton, purchased at JoAnn’s. For some reason it has a very pinkish hue, but as long as it’s not next to any other white fabric, I don’t think it’s noticeable.
And now, onto another project. I’m thinking another bag, perhaps with the great Echino fabric I received recently. More about that coming soon…
