18" square napkins with the new Jennifer Paganelli Pretty Please fabric line for Free Spirit turned out so fun and practical. Picked up the fabric at my favorite quilt store, KC Custom Fabrics, they have great colorways in this line. I love how they turned out and wish I didn't make them to give away! Paired with a lovely tray from Target and a fun acrylic bowl for summer salads, this turned into a fun gift for my husband's mother. I used three prints and a yard and a half of each fabric yielded 9 mix and match napkins. They will be fun to use poolside this summer!
Shots of the napkins straight out of the machine. After sewing them together I topstitched close to the edge and then also an inch off the edge. Used the edge foot for the first time and LOVE it! I think I will really like the size much better than the 13" square that I made before, which were really just an odd size for a napkin. Thrilled with these.
Took a picture of each of the kids and put it onto a scrabble tile as well. Sealed, glazed, etc and then attached a magnet. In the large slider tin, they make a super cute gift.
Also made a her a scrabble pendant with photos and a sterling silver chain. It is hard to wear all of them at once, but perhaps she can wear them on the kids birthdays, etc.
Here are the 9 finished napkins - aren't they fun?
