When I was growing up, I remember how my grandmother used to set the table. Whether it was breakfast or dinner, she always used a tablecloth and set a full set of dishes. There was no skimping. Every meal was made special.
Fast forward many years and I am setting the table for my family. It is really important to me that we sit together and connect. To make meals a little more special, we sometimes use cloth napkins.
Cloth napkins are a little touch that adds a bit of elegance, comfort, and durability to the table, without a great expense. In fact, along with being environmentally friendly, cloth napkins will save money over time. Best of all, they are very easy to make! If you can sew a straight line, you can make a napkin.
I made my cloth napkins from a blue and white striped sheet I had picked up at Goodwill for just $2. Of course, you can use linen, calicos, or fat quarters. I love the neutral, farmhouse look of this striped fabric.
If you would like to make your own 15 inch square cloth napkins, you will need:
- 16 inch squares (one for each napkin)
