Cloth Napkins

For a family of seven, we go through a lot of paper napkins each day and we’re constantly running out of them.  I finally wised up and made cloth napkins using the serger I received for my birthday.  Now our eating experience gets more exciting using cloth napkins.  The kids can choose from standard looking ones to cute turtle prints & lady bug prints to pretty pink flower prints.

Here are the cloth napkins (10″ x 10″ in size):

I simply fold these in half (actually, the kids fold them) and store them in a basket on the dining table:

I love it when it’s both economical and fun.

    Oh, Lois, those are just too cool. I miss napkins – real ones, not the tissue-like substitutes we find here.

    Love it! I saw this once before where I a mother matched the theme of the lunch box food to the napkin. :)
