Red, white, and blue plates. I pinned this because it looks like someone beautifully combined their grandma's tiny antique blue plate, with everyday china (and undoubtedly something from Home Goods or Dollar Store)! Reminds me to look for ways to use pieces from my grandmother, even where I don't have a whole set.
I'm so thrilled to have directions for sewing napkins. I actually purchased material to do this a few years ago and then got stuck. This is a great beginning sewing project for people like me (or my daughter -- hint hint ;) I'd love to get some of these for Christmas. You could also make some in a holiday theme to give as gifts; little sets of 8 napkins tied up in a pretty bow - priceless!
