I’m on a serious mission to save all the money we possibly can around our home. One money saving technique that I am trying is cloth napkins. We waste close to $10 a month on paper napkins. That is completely ridiculous and we could do much better things with that $120 a year! So I went searching for a solution, that wasn’t going to cost us any additional money.
Solution: I made cloth napkins out of kitchen towels that I didn’t like. The towels I used were thin and they always irritated me as towels because they barely soak up any water, but cut in half and repurposed as cloth napkins, they are perfect!
I cut the towels in half. No measuring here. I wanted an easy project so I eyeballed everything. I hemmed each cut piece and then labeled them with a “D” for dining room to make sure they wouldn’t make there way back to my kitchen towel cabinet.
My sewing abilities leave a lot to be desired but they work and they didn’t cost a thing!
