How-to: Make Cloth Napkins

Pirate Napkin and Ships
My friend Shannon and I made a set of pirate-themed cloth napkins to go with the mini cork pirate ships that I shared with you guys not too long ago. The whole thing was for a pop up picnic, and I have to say that our table totally rocked! Shannon brought this remnant fabric for us to use, but you can use whatever you have on hand. Organic hemp is excellent for napkin-making, too, if you don’t have anything suitable in your stash.

Paper napkins are a huge waste of resources. Not only does it take energy and trees to produce all of those disposable napkins, but once the meal is through, you have to toss them in the trash, since you can’t recycle that food-soaked paper. Cloth napkins might feel like a fancy-dinner-party-only sort of thing, but that doesn’t have to be true at all! It’s easy as pie to whip up a batch of cloth napkins, and you can make yourself a bunch if you like, so you have some for every day use and a set for special occasions.

A few of tips for making and caring for cloth napkins:

  • Choose a busy and/or dark fabric. You want to choose a pattern that won’t easily show stains.
  • Go with fabric that’s sturdy and machine-washable. You want these things to last, and you want them to fit into your real-life routine.
  • Soak them. If you have a particularly greasy or messy meal, you can prevent your napkins from staining by tossing them into a bucket of water to soak until you’re ready to throw them in the washing machine. Even better: use the water from the bucket to water some plants instead of pouring it down the drain when you’re done with it!
