Fun and easy (with cloth napkins and a silk ribbon). Fold over one-third of the napkin and sew edges. Create the slim pockets by spacing seams 2 inches apart along the napkin's width. There always seem to be single cloth napkins on sale at Pier 1 or World Market that would be great to use for this.
A quick little project that makes a great gift and (as long as you have a pack of coloured pencils lying about) can be whipped up at short notice with materials from your stash…Only basic sewing skills required, so is a great beginner project.
This funky floral tote is as fashionable as it is functional. Bright pink, orange, and blue make this beginner purse perfect for spring or summer. Swap in brown and dark green for a fall-to-winter look.
