Well, it's not that one would necessary need napkins for Valentine's day but the post title space is not enough to describe all possible applications of an upcycled t-shirt. I wanted to use the heart symbol and therefore made napkins for the whole family. The napkins can turn into bed linen for a doll, a cloth, wrapping fabric and so on. When Mathilda was a little girl (as if she was big now...) she loved to play with cloths - with my glass cleaning cloths to be precise - exercising her imagination in all possible ways. She never gave them back to me.
Why not try it out? Those last-minute napkins & co. are very easy to make.
You need to cut a clean cotton t-shirt into rectangular-square-ish pieces and with a very simple pattern stitch the hearts. At the beginning I left a longer piece of thread to tie it at the end with the remaining end. I then cut the thread but left around 5 mm of it as you can see in the picture. Don't forget to iron the napkins. They will look neat and fresh.
For our other St. Valentine's Day projects look here - scented salt dough, here - a garland and here - a card.
