    Can I skip making the napkins and head straight to making a pillow?! I’m the worst at measuring and design, thanks for taking the work out of the project for me.

    those are awesome! I’m bookmarking this. I only entertain with cloth napkins and I’ve been wanting to make my own for awhile.

    Mr Goodwill- I hear you! I’m already using the technique in my dining room for another projects!

    Karen: After I made the first one I thought the same thing! I just want toss pillows my guest can use paper napkins.

    Jenn: Enjoy the post! I’ve been trying to be green and use only cloth napkins as well!

    Awesome…I have been meaning to make a small curtain for a small dresser I found in the trash. I painted it pale avocado and have wanted to add a linen curtain with a similar pattern for quite sometime and after seeing this, I am so doing it this weekend. Thanks for the inspiration!
    And I love the fact that your old blog was called high heeled foot in the door…it was a fabulous starting point and great blog name to start out with. Congratulations again on this incredible new journey!

    Those are so super cute, and the d-ring is genius! That is the same thing I was trying to do with my daughter’s curtains, but the pattern wasn’t going to be as visible as a flat napkin or pillow. Wish I’d figured that out before I cut all those pieces of ribbon! 🙂 Great job!

    I was told this design was called Dog Eared, but I can’t seem to find similar designs online. Could you tell me the name of this design? Also, is there some website you could point me to that gives me the names of all these beautiful designs? I absolutely love your blog. My husband might not like it as much because of all the DIYs I am now doing.

    For me it’s always been called either greek key or fretwork. I’m sorry, but I don’t know of a site that has design patterns listed by name. So happy you are enjoying the blog!

    Love the napkins! Saw these on clearance at JCP and instantly thought of you- I believe it’s a set of 4 for 4.99 …

    I regularly read your blog, but I must have missed this one. Perfect timing too, since I’m thinking of making a fretwork duvet cover!
