Boyfriend's mum gave me a gift voucher for the Organic Mamas store for Christmas. I knew straight away what I wanted to make, but it only just made it to the top of the 'to-stitch' queue. Serviettes.
In our house we tend to use paper serviettes, which I realise is pretty wasteful. Better to have fabric serviettes that you can use, wash, and use again.
I had hoped to use the rolled hem foot on my sewing machine (remember my plan to find out what all the feet do?) but the fabric was too thick to go through the curl. So I had to use the old fashioned fold-and-pin method.
It's a very sturdy organic cotton canvas.
A simple project but a good one. I made six napkins and had enough fabric left to make a matching tea towel. We go through a lot of tea towels in our house. These will be well used.
