cocktail napkins

The holidays have really forced me to confront my lack of paper napkins! When I was setting out appetizers on Thanksgiving, I realized I had no little napkins to go with them. This isn't the first time that has happened. I usually call my neighbor in a panic and beg to borrow some of her paper napkin supply.

So now with Christmas fast approaching, I think it is time I break out my sewing machine and get to work. I've been collecting fabric from various stores and sales so that I can produce some napkins. I'm a novice sewer, so even this seems intimidating, but I think it will be a great project to practice my skills.

I'm sure you can also find resources to buy them online, but I think it will be fun to use fabrics that I really love. Reprotdepot and Etsy have lots of gorgeous ones to choose from.

We have been out of paper napkins for a long time also. I realized the other day when a friend asked for a paper plate for her toddler that I haven't used a paper plate in ages either. It's funny how you totally forget about paper products when you use them so rarely. Good job thinking ahead.
