Learning to Love my Sewing Machine

My my, it certainly has been a few days since my last post. I got all caught up in the post birthday celebrating and caught up on all the work I have been trying to hard to put off doing. I let myself away with far too much around my birthday. Anyway it’s back to real life now and back to trying to complete my Project 2011. I have a whole drawer full of fabric scraps and fat quarters and all sorts of lovely pieces of fabric and following my investment in Martha’s Sewing Encyclopedia, I decided it was time to dust off my lonely sewing machine and burn some midnight oil in order to make one of the simplest things I could find – napkins.

After picking some suitably summery looking fabric I was off! I made 6 and make them slightly smaller than Martha recommends (17-inches overall prior to sewing). I think this still makes a nice generous sized napkin and it means you can easily get 6 our of a meter of fabric.

And, after minimal cursing and swearing they are complete! Hooray. Now I just need to find more excuses to use them, they will be just perfect for afternoon tea and serving up fat slices of yummy cake. I can’t wait.
