It is well known in my school that I appreciate old linens, buttons, and bits of lace, etc. Sandra, known to us affectionately as Diva, came to school one day with a package containing eight gorgeous handmade cutwork napkins and gave them to me. They were her mother's napkins but they weren't something that Diva would use but she knew that I would put them to good use. The first thing I made was a little sundress for Diva's granddaughter Aurora. I had the perfect floral fabric to go with them: Le Jardin Birds N Butterflies by Susan Winget. I used Portabello Pixie's Petal Knot Dress for the pattern in a size 3.

Are there any beautiful napkins or hankies hidden away in your closets? Perhaps you might want to take them out and fashion something new out of something old! Have fun!
