I was very proud of my sketchy skills for the embroidery designs, and so in love with that wavy, brown, bacon-y fabric.
And the blueberry muffin motif was made especially for her because of her work with a special little boy. Mrs. Do-er is one of my Autism Angels.
So, while it is quite a compliment that she tells me she is trying to figure out how to display the napkins on her wall, there is a downfall to something being too cute to use. I've offered to make her a wall-hanging; we'll see if she takes me up on it. And next time I'm over at her house, I may have to rifle through her stuff and wipe my mouth on these. Lol!
I want to thank Penny at Sew Take a Hike for a great tutorial on mitering the corners on the trimmed edge of these napkins. I constructed mine a little differently so that the folded edge of the trim would butt against the raw edge of the base fabric, but her instructions and photos were crucial to me being able to figure that out. Also, I am now on the hunt for some newsprint fabric because those napkins she made are ALMOST too cute to use, too! :)
