Reusable Napkins for School Lunch Boxes

A fun lunch napkin project and new fabric

Some of the grandchildren are older now (middle school) and decided they really didn’t want Superhero napkins for their lunch boxes. So the request was made for new napkins. It only took me 3 weeks to get them made and shipped. It takes less than 15 minutes to make one of these from start to finish – cutting to final press. I made these 13″ x 13″ just because I could get three out of a width of fabric. 14″ square would probably be a little better, but economy won. And in the end, there were 11 of them. I think these colors work fine for boys. UPS will deliver them today – I’m sure they will call. Last night they called because they won 2nd and 3rd place in Cross Country at their school which just goes to show how overall athleticism in soccer and tennis translates to another sport as this was their first Cross Country endeavor.

And I found a new place to buy fabric. It was just by chance. I googled a fabric that I needed to match something that was in progress because I was afraid there  wouldn’t be enough and wanted some insurance. Have you ever done that? I found the fabric at Old Country Store Fabrics and of course they started sending me email. They are located in Pennsylvania and have wonderful fabrics at reasonable prices. They carry a lot of Moda fabrics which I like and haven’t found anywhere else except in limited selections at small quilt shops that are in Raleigh which can be a 40 minutes plus drive depending on traffic.

I needed a few pieces – some grays and a good medium blue and some Christmas pieces to add to what I already have for a Christmas crazy quilt and thus placed another order. This is what I got. They are all just beautiful and have such a wonderful hand.

It’s Wednesday – hope you have a wonderful day! The sun is shining here and the morning air is crisp.
