Simplify your life with homemade cloth napkins

Joan, who blogs at thethingaboutjoan, sews cloth napkins. I love cloth napkins, too! They can be used every day (in place of disposable paper napkins) and washed with the household laundry. They don’t have be fancy, and they don’t have to be store bought. In this article, she provides simple instructions for sewing your own:

“Ode to a cloth napkin.” Here are the napkins she made:

Aren’t they sweet?! One of my daughter sews, and she has collected some old curtains and things to begin her napkin sewing project.

Joan has also nominated me for a “One Lovely Blog” award:

Thanks, Joan! Pay her a visit! She writes about her adventures as a suburban mom. On her blog you’ll find Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Settlers of Catan, humor, and joy.

And now, the question: sewing your own homemade napkins from scrap fabric is an example of which Principle(s) of Simplicity?

  1. great tutorial! My stiesr made these as her first project when learning how to sew. I love them because I don’t use paper towels or paper napkins anymore. She used patterned fabric so they’re much cuter than paper napkins anyway.
