I adore vintage linens and I have a whole stash of beautiful tablecloths that I've picked up over the years. The problem is that they are all sitting in my closet - folded and unused. They aren't that kid friendly and who needs more laundry. What we do use a whole lot of around here are cloth napkins. We'll go through a whole set during breakfast, lunch and dinner. The ones that we've been using the most we're looking really mangy. So I think I spotted this idea in Betz White's book while browsing the book store a few weeks back. I cut up a well worn tablecloth with great colors and lovely soft linen and trimmed it with bias tape. Each one has a different slice of the overall pattern which I love. I have just 2 more to sew up tonight for a nice new set of 6. Very pleased. Let the wiping of fingers begin.
