Fabric Serviettes

Make lovely cloth napkins out of old shirts.  You can use any pattern fabric and they will look great on your dinner table,  They will also reduce the need for paper serviette. Faded plaids and checked patterns look especially great.

Make them from favourite shirts so everyone has their own set of napkins. I did this with an old shirt of Hannah's that she just loved and wore almost to the point of it falling apart. Now she has serviettes made from her favourite shirt and we all know that the pink plaid napkins are for her use only.

To make them wash the shirt and then simply cut 30cm squares from the fronts and back. You can hem or overlock the edges or for a more casual look stitch a 1cm border inside the edge of the fabric and fray the  ends.
