And in the spirit of full disclosure, I am not altogether entirely happy with these--yet. I think the width of the ruffle may be too much...it is reminding me of a 70's era bridesmaid dress or kitchen curtains my mom would have had when I was 5 or something...and these are a little more "shabby chic" than intended, but that I think could grow on me. I actually made the ruffle from an old white bed sheet that I cut into strips, leaving the edges unfinished so they could be intentionally frayed (mostly because I am lazy). I am somehow convinced that I could create a version of this that would entirely please me, so I am going to try to make a few more yet, this time with white ruffle on white linen napkins, making the ruffle thinner and little more discreet--less 70's prom tuxedo shirt-y, if you know what I mean.And then I also made 6 more napkins from some more fat quarters I purchased at Crafty Planet. These were a big ol' piece of cake to make since I just folded and pressed the edges, then sewed those in place. I do like the combo of patterns on this set--they contain about all my favorite fabric patterns: stripes, polka dots, chickens, daisies and cherries.
So, 10 more napkins complete. I am at 28 total napkins made right now. My goal is 40. 12 more designs for you to look forward to, dear Chez Beeper Bebe readers.
