Watercolor sketched card 

Simple folded hems
Left the edge so that one may see fabric information.

I visited some dear friends in Napa and promised myself to make them dinner napkins – they’re big practitioners of REUSE. Besides I never got them a housewarming gift since they've moved to that house over a year ago!

Combing through fabric scraps at Creative Depot, I found a linen blend perfect for napkins/toweling. It’s durable though (read: rough on your skin), and requires washing to soften up and use as napkins. 7 napkins/towels were made for less than $5 worth of fabric. Sigh, I love the Creative Depot.

In other news, I've been making plans to change this blog layout a bit. Spiffy it up by simplifying. Let's see how long it takes me to complete that!
