I wanted to mention this now especially since there is a sale at Sublime Stitching on cocktail napkins. Go buy some.

These cocktail napkins were fun and quick to put together and can make a great personal gift for someone or yourself. I bought the napkins from Sublime Stitching and used some of the iron on transfers from Sublime Stitching: Hundreds of Hip Embroidery Patterns and How-To (amazon.com link).

I didn’t do anything fancy, mostly backstitch and some satin stitch, but these were really fun to make and didn’t take much time either. I even ventured out later into handkerchiefs (more on that later).
