No more paper napkins

I've been collecting used and vintage fabrics from a local recycle place called, "Arts and scraps." Its this great place that collects lots of factory discarded things including giant paper which I love. They also collect old fabric scraps. Some of the fabric is from half finished projects, some are scraps, some are swatches from clothing companies. Anyway we always find lots of great treasures when we go. For instance on our last visit we found a bunch of wooden eggs, a basket weaving kit, and some wool yarn.
So the past few days I've been cutting some of the fabric into squares and hemming the edges so that now I have a big bowl full of handmade napkins. I love that none of them match!
