I have been looking for projects to do in the afternoon when everyone needs a quiet project. I saw this napkin project that I loved for two reasons: we use fabric napkins all the time and the project seemed doable with all my kids.
I followed her directions mostly. I bought cotton fabric and cut out napkins, then hemmed them. With a coupon it was $5 for a yard and a half which made 10 napkins. I also found these already made 100% cotton napkins that would work great too. As you can see in one of the photos below, the glue beads up. We had to go back after we made the design and retrace the glue lines so the glue was absorbed by the fabric. She also recommends watering the paint down, so do I. The consistency of coffee with milk worked well.
Shhh I think many family members might get gifts of monogrammed napkins.
Here are some pictures of our process.
