A few cloth napkins I pulled from our household's cloth napkin pile.
But whatever the label is, I wanted to share one of my favorite things around the house. It happened out of necessity. When my oldest was around 2.5 and my younger one was starting solids, I got FED UP with paper napkins. We would go through dozens at one meal sometimes. The paper ones would tear, get stuck on their little sticker mouths and hands and even eaten sometimes. As a solution, I decided to sew up some cloth napkins from fabrics from my stash.
Over a dozen washes and still looking good :)
The sewing wasn't hard, but it took a bit of time since I kept having to sew more and more to keep up with the demands of a growing family (we must have about 80 napkins now - and it usually last us a whole week before washing). Here we are 3 years later and we are still using cloth napkins. We keep a stash of emergency paper ones somewhere in the pantry just in case we don't have time to wash or have larger parties. I don't know about the rest of the family, but I am absolutely hooked on cloth napkins.
I'm sharing this [green and on-going project] at these lovely linky parties.
