Here They Are Again

I spent some time with my napkin ladies and wanted to show you how they turned out.  The blue lady is also a bell.  Her hat will even hold a candle or toothpicks.  She is much better at multi tasking than I am!  Isn't she pretty in her vintage hankie skirt?

When these ladies were popular in the 40's - 60's, they graced the table with napkins in their skirts.  And some were used as a dinner bell as well.  The white lady was not open on the bottom and it was very difficult to get the hankies in without reaching up inside.  So I bought some paper Valentine napkins for her skirt.  I think I'll change the napkins for each holiday to give my sewing room a festive touch.

Speaking of the sewing room...I will have the reveal next week!!!  I think!  I hope!

Have a great day!
