FO: Re-purposed table cloth to pretty napkins
A few weeks ago, I found a really pretty embroidered table cloth in the local charity shop - it was so lovely and for only £2, I couldn't resist buying it, even though it was square and so of no use to us whatsoever as an actual table cloth.
I'd acquired (ahem, half-inched) another embroidered table cloth from my Mum a week earlier and decided that, because the embroidery was all in the corners, it would be really simple to cut the table cloths in quarters, re-hem them and turn them in to pretty napkins instead.
Last week, I found another square table-cloth in another charity shop so decided to buy that one as well to give myself 12 really pretty, vintage napkins - all for the grand total of £5 - not bad me thinks!
