Cloth Napkins

I have entirely too much fabric and I've recently found that everyone needs some cloth napkins.  Go ahead and do your own research on how many napkins you and your family use.  The numbers are frightening.

First, I picked out two fabrics that sort of match.  They don't have to be exact matches, since they will become opposite sides of the same napkin.  I want to keep this post short, so I've added the full tutorial to the tutorial section.  
After you've sewn them up, you have a nice little stack of coordinating napkins to use or give away.  Two yards of fabric will yield six to eight napkins, depending on size.  These are approximately 12.5" square.
Here is the stack that I made.  I bundled all of these up together, all 22 of them, and gave them as a hostess gift.  Sure, they don't match, but she is a busy mom of two and doesn't mind the fact that they don't match.  They fit her style.
