For dinner we use cloth napkins, and for lunch I was using old baby washcloths for the kids to wipe their hands and faces. Several of the washcloths had gotten holes, but instead of spending money on new ones, I thought of an idea while cleaning out. We had several soft flannel baby blankets around the house, but no babies anymore (sigh, that phase leaves so quickly, doesn't it?). So, I cut the blankets up into small cloth napkins just the perfect size for the kids to use!
I love how soft they are!
I could have/should have gone the extra mile and sewed up a hem around the edge, but I knew adding that step would likely mean the blankets would never turn into cloth napkins, so I just cut around the edges with pinking shears. Good enough!
