I knew I wanted to make some as soon as I saw them! I decided on plain muslin fabric so I could embroider some cute motifs. I sewed 5 napkins but have only done the embroidery on one. It wasn't hard at all but I just haven't sat down to finish the others. Here's the one I have completed:
I freehanded the fish with a fabric marker and used a simple backstitch. The smiling goldfish is thicker because I doubled the thread. I forgot to do the same when I was making the second fish but I think it makes the smiling fish stand out more, which I like. So it's a happy accident.
I have the book Doodle Stitching and plan on using some of the cute motifs out of there for the rest of the napkins.
Do you have any fun ideas or tips to make kids lunch less ho hum? I'd love to hear them!
