napkins…check

I talked about these napkins quite often during the last several weeks, so thought it was only right to show you the completed stack. It was close, but I did manage to finish hemming them all, right before the loaner sewing machine had to go back. (Many thanks to June at my favorite local fabric shop for providing the loaner and for hemming my wedding dress at the very last moment!)

I coudn’t pick a favorite fabric or favorite colors, so instead opted for polka dots. They’re fun, and I already had lots of polka dotted fabric, so it seemed perfect. I had hoped to hem each with this decorative stitch to echo the polka dots, but when my machine had to go to the shop, the loaner didn’t have the same stitch. I moved to these loops, then finally ended up with a zig zag when I was trying to finish them quickly before we left. I don’t think anyone will notice the hem of the napkin anyway!

    Love these! Not sure I could use that much fabric for napkins, but hey you get to enjoy them out in the open instead of in your stash! I love the detail on the hem. I would totally notice that.

    that’s a whole lotta napkins! i’d like a photo with them scattered (and by that i mean gently placed in a seemingly haphazard fashion) so that they are suspended on top of the water in the pool. they look so especially nice with the turquoise background! although, i may not want to wipe my mouth with one afterwards…

    Hi! I love your quilts! And your stash! And your quilts! Did I mention that I love your quilts? I decided just this weekend that I would like to make napkins for our family of 5 so that we can cut down on our use of paper products. May I ask where you got the pattern, or if it is your pattern if you will be sharing a tutorial? Thanks so much for the wonderful inspiration. :~)

    I will probably straight-up snake this idea for my wedding, if that’s OK. I totally love these napkins and they would be so perfect. Any advice?
