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!
