Lunch Box Cloth Napkins!
I have been meaning to sew some cloth napkins for the kids to put in their lunch bags for school...and finally got around to it today!
The kids had picked some fabrics a few weeks ago, we only bought a quarter metre of each. They picked a few winter/holiday theme ones, Princess chose a pink one of course, and Dragon had found a couple of neat "boy" fabrics (skateboards, and rocks??).
Napkins are pretty simple to make, but I did find a nice tutorial online at Chara Michelle that explains very clearly how to go about it. I started with a 12x12 in. square.
So far, I have made three napkins out of three different fabrics. The kids all love them!
