We are having very unseasonable warm weather today, I have some windows open.  Ahh fresh air.  I took a break from doing some (early) spring cleaning to rest my back and blog. 

Casey  posted yesterday about men's hankies that she bought to use as fabric and it reminded me of fabric napkins that I bought a while ago.

I bought some of the plaid ones to actually use as napkins but most I bought to use as fabrics. 

These 2 are 18 x 18" and 100% cotton, a package of 2 for $1. 
 I bought lots of green and browns, does the color scheme look familiar.  I think that they will work well in Jaynie's Loft, I don't know how I forgot that I had these.

These are between 18" and 22" squares, came 4 in a package for $2.

I also found a few other colors.  I think that I bought at least one pack of each that they had in 100% cotton.
There were a few that were not 100% cotton, I left those in the store.

I hope that you can also find some nice fabric at a good price outside of the fabric store.

I need to get back to cleaning,  I hope that you are enjoying your day. 

Thank you for visiting, Mary


  1. Mary, you got lucky. Around here, most napkins are much more expensive and not 100% cotton! Good going!

    1. Hi Casey, I make sure that I always check, most of the time I don't find much but every so often I hit the jackpot. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Fantastic idea. The fabric looks great. I will be searching for napkins now lol though i dont think i will get such a bargain.

    1. Hi Maria, I hope you have good luck on your search but don't give up if you don't find something great the first time, keep looking.

  3. Great buys. This reminds me to go cheque the napkins that came with tablecloths I have from Quatamala.

  4. Hi Drora, I hope that your napkins work out for you. It's always great when you can find a mini use for something that you alread have.
