I made a tablecloth first (below) from a thin thrifted sheet that I didn't realize was very thin and worn when I bought it a year or two ago. It was almost ditched when I was destashing a couple of months ago, but I held onto it for the specific purpose of making a tablecloth for the picnic table.
After I made the tablecloth (in about 5 minutes), I decided I may as well keep using the rolled hem before I had to change it back to serging. I made a large stack of napkins. In total I made 83 napkins, I think. I know what you're thinking: "Woman, why on earth do you need 83 cloth napkins?!?" And the obvious answer is that there are eight people in my family. The second answer is so I don't have to wash them as often.
The napkins are made entirely from scrap fabrics and thrifted sheets. They are all different sizes, including small (for tea parties and for Spenser and Sawyer) and there are normal-sized ones. There are squares and rectangles. Whatever scrap I could square up with my rotary cutter and mat, is what I made.
Spenser is in love with the Strawberry Shortcake ones. Do you blame her?
Here's a closeup of the tablecloth. It rained a lot over the weekend and the picnic table was wet at the time and it was too dark in my house.
And I just have to mention that on Friday Mason had his kindergarten play day. He ran the 200 meter. Do you see that boy in the green shirt all the way in the front? That would be him. He had a huge lead on the other boys and won first place amongst this group of boys. Woo-hoo, Mason! You obviously get your speed from Uncle Pete. I know it's not from me.
