Sew Much Fun

If you are interested in sewing, I highly recommend that you check out Film in the Fridge. In addition to making beautiful and inspiring quilts, she offers a great tutorial on how to made reversible rick-rack napkins. I sewed these two sets for Christmas presents. They are a quick, fun project. I have the fabric picked out for three more gift sets and then will need to get cranking some of these babies out for myself. I really enjoyed picking out the coordinating fabrics and sewing these napkins. As someone who is fairly new to sewing, I learned alot about turning corners and could see my skills improve with each napkin.

Fabric: 100% cotton 1 yard each print from the quilting fabric section purchased at Joann Fabric
