I can’t cut them or sew them – yet.
My first project through Home Ec was to sew a cloth napkin. I decided I needed six.
Originally intended to be 18″x18″, my first attempts with a rotary blade led me to decide they’d be better as 17″x17″. Even with the uneven seams, I’m happy with the results. I made double-sided napkins with the three fabrics I chose.
I learned three things:
1. How to use a rotary blade.
2. How to use my new sewing machine.
3. Until I can sew straight seams, I need to stick to busy, dark prints. And dark thread.
Still, they’re pretty cute.
