Napkin Upcycle

I have been toting seven ugly red cloth napkins around the country for a very, very long time.  They showed themselves again while I was looking for some other fabric.
 Enough is enough.

I found this cute fabric coaster tutorial a while ago and I knew these napkins were about to change!




  I found some old coordinating prints and the ugly tomato of pins.


A little piecing and pinning and the machine was off and running! 


Much better!
