Making Cloth Napkins

Cloth napkins are better for the environment and it is so much nicer to use cloth instead of paper. There's always room in the washer for napkins. It's hard to find cloth napkins especially ones that are inexpensive. TJ Max has tablecloths for $7.99.

A 102" x 60" tablecloth should give you about 15-18 napkins. Another option is to get a table cloth too big for your table, cut it to fit your table, and use the excess to make napkins. You can simply turn the edges under and stitch a narrow hem by machine. A set of cloth napkins make a wonderful gift.

I got a coordinating tablecloth and made a square from a rectangle to use on a round table. We do all sorts of crafts at this table so I've had a glass top cut to fit the top.
