I used 3 fabrics, and made an apron, more Kleenex cozies, and more napkins. None of them are difficult or awfully time-consuming. In fact, I was trying to figure out how much time it actually took me to make them. I'm guessing an hour for the 4 napkins, about half an hour for the 4 Kleenex cozies and no more than two and one-half hours for the apron.
Here they all are together...
More Kleenex cozies for sister Joyce. I am now half done with the dozen I plan to make for her.
More napkins...it's interesting how these two fabrics looked kind of blah until I was finished...and now I think they are perfect fabrics for napkins! ~grin~
There are several ways to make napkins, and believe me, I've tried them all. What works best for me is a single layer of cotton or linen with mitered corners.
The apron. Since I did not show any photos of the one I made on Sunday, I made sure I had photos of this one for your perusal. The very first thing I made when I took sewing classes in high school was an apron. The lessons I learned from Miss Roach have stayed with me all these years. The old adage...do it right. I may not be the best sewist in the world, but I do my best.

Thus far today, I have done nothing...except look at fabric and cut for 4 more napkins. But, that's okay. I think today is a knitting day.
I need to get to Hobby Lobby one day soon.
Hope you are having a great day!
