Still trying to come up with an idea for some homespun placemats and napkins, I went into this great upholstery store here, called King Cotton. They have an amazing bin of discontinued upholstery samples that you can purchase for $1.00 apiece. Because the newlyweds are just starting a household, I thought that they could use a set of linen napkins, which would look very natural. I bought 2 of each in coordinating fabrics. Also, I bought a leftover floral linen yardage that was $10.00. Now, off to the sewing machine.
Most importantly, I washed them in warm water to avoid shrinkage after use. Now, the bride can wash them again and again in warm water.
Finally, I wrapped the gift in brown paper and added a burlap ribbon with a bit of lace.
To welcome our newest family member(the bride), I attached a tag with a picture of her soon to be husband's great grandparents on their wedding day. And the family continues........
And the gift ready for presentation.
May they have many happy days ahead.
