First Sewing Project of 2010

SO my sister and her husband were over for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day(we had a great time with them). We were happily lunching on our sloppy barbecue beef sandwiches and fries when I realized I had run out of napkins and paper towels. Not that we were above eating without napkins, mind you. But barbecue is notoriously messy and a napkin would have been nice.

Sitting there wiping my mouth on my sleeve(yep, I'm that sophisticated) I thought "Hmmm...all that fabric in the back closet...perhaps I could put some to good use and make a few napkins"

After digging through my fat quarter basket, I decided on some fruit and veggie fabrics that had been in that basket for at least two years. They were too cheap to pass up at the time I bought them, but when I got them home I remember thinking "What in the world am I going to do with broccoli fabric?" I'm glad to have finally found a use for them! And of course you realize this is just the beginning of my napkin collection! I will be requiring more of these fruit/veggie fabrics...Etsy, here I come!

What a great idea Kellie, what did you do, just stitch around the edges? Did you back them or anything?
