In an effort to cut down on paper napkin and paper towel use, we have been using cloth napkins at mealtime since last summer.
I have made four sets thus far that have been seasonal, including some summery ones that look like they'd be fun to take on a picnic.
In addition to some ants, I stitched a horsefly,
BTW, I get 4 napkins from a yard of fabric. I hate waste and I love shortcuts ('cause I'm lazy) so I don't even make them square. I cut the yard of fabric into fat quarters and hem each side with mitered corners. They're so quick and easy to make and lots of fun to switch out for each season. Finished size is about 16" x 19".
My dishcloths have been quite popular lately so I knit up another one this evening. My current favourite pattern is the ballband dishcloth.
