Creating Elegance

Standard

I’ve had this fabric for a very long time.   It’s a fabulous piece of delicate voile in a natural creamy color with a classic fleur-de-lys gold print.  I have never known quite what to do with it , but knew it had to be something elegant and special.  Today I found its purpose and began cutting.

I appreciate a beautiful table and have made many cloth napkins before.  I have a great pattern with a mitered corner that lends itself well to sheer fabrics.  Here is what I came up with and I think it very pretty.  Now only seven (argh) more napkins to make and I’m ready to entertain. 🙂
