I finished all of our wedding napkins - all one hundred and twenty of them. Aren't they pretty?
Now, before I let you sit there thinking that I slaved away this summer hemming napkins in my free time, I'll let you in on a little secret: I only did a proper hem on thirty of them. The rest got trimmed with pinking shears. (Shhhhhh - don't tell Martha!) Why waste time and yardage on napkins that I intend to cut up and quilt after the wedding? By my calculations, I saved myself at least 24 hours of work and three yards of fabric. Those hems add up!
I'm already thinking about quilts to make with these after the wedding is over. Any suggestions?
