I let the girls pick out fabric from my stash and sewed up quick napkins for them. We've been using cloth napkins for a few years now- the original batch has recently gone to the compost pile, they were pretty worn out. I found a pile of napkins I'd forgotten about in the linen closet when I cleaned it out a few weeks ago and set them out in my basket. Seeing those pretty new napkins in the napkin basket made me happy... seeing Mimi pull out 4 napkins for each meal did not make me happy. So, now each girl has two napkins of her own, to be used until they need to be cleaned: happy girls. I have a pile of clean and pressed napkins: happy Myrnie. Happy happy! (I just folded a double hem while I stitched around the edges, and mitered the corners as I came to them. Simple, single-ply, napkins.). Is this gross? Would you be OK with your kids using napkins over multiple meals?
