Several years ago, my Mom spent a lot of time making cloth napkins for us to use on a daily basis. Cloth napkins can be very expensive to purchase so I had an idea. I started collecting fabric from remnant baskets at stores and from Thrift Stores & Garage Sales. This is a great way to get fabric cheap!
We now have a variety of cloth napkins to use everyday as well as some for holidays & seasons. There are not any napkin "sets" just a mish mash of fun and decorative prints. The point was not to have all matching napkins but to have enough to use for 3 meals a day. This has helped save money because I will no longer purchase paper disposable napkins and it is good for the environment because we have completely eliminated a disposable product in our house. This idea is not only frugal but fun!
To make cloth napkins:
- Cut fabric into squares (any size will work).
- Use a serger or you can hem the edges with a sewing machine.
