Patriotic Napkins

Whenever I see holiday themed fabric on sale, I usually buy it.  I love making holiday themed quilts.   However lately I have been making holiday themed cloth napkins.  Yesterday and today I made these patriotic cloth napkins.  There are 6 napkins in each 10" x 10" set, and two 5" x 10" napkins in each set. Thats a total of 16 napkins.  The reason why there are so few smaller napkins is because they are what was left over after cutting the 10" squares of fabric.  Here is my video on how to make these napkins.   In the video I make 5" x 10" napkins.  Slowly I am adding to the amount of cloth napkins in my home.  These small napkins are nice.  You can use them, then just toss them in the wash.  They don't take up any room in the washing machine, and they are very durable.


  1. Really love the flag pattern ones! How great to make your own, they are so expensive to buy!

  2. Thank you :) They are very cheap and easy to make, especially if you buy the fabric on sale.

  3. This is a smart and inexpensive way to get a nice set of napkins and reduce waste. I'd love for you to link up to Fabric Fun Thursday.

  4. Kristy,
    Love the idea of every day cloth napkins. Way to go on making them! Plus they're cute! Thanks for joining the Patriotic Parade!
    have a safe and happy holiday!
