I am still walking down Suzy Homemaker's yellow brick road. I bought this fabric for napkins last week after I saw a tutorial on Jan's blog called Be*mused. She made some cool ones with all different kinds of "food" fabrics.
I think this tomato fabric is so fun, the dots were just perfect too.
I used some fabric from my stash for the back, which would also be a nice napkin all on it's own.
I did a pretty good job of edge stitching and I feel it will hold up well to many washings. The tutorial was super easy with good instructions, you could make a bunch in an evening.
I picked this up at the library today. I was attracted to the cover at first, very Peter Max. Has anyone read this? I also want to read the book Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn after Barb's recommendation.
I have joined a family (well mostly) book club through Facebook. It is going to be interesting. My husband, Bob and his brother John are the only males in the group. Both are very eclectic readers and I think it will be interesting to read their picks too. The first book we read was Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons, I can't remember the author. Now we are reading The Litigator by John Grisham, Bob's pick. Are you in a book club and have any good suggestions?
