Each year I make my kids new napkins for their lunchboxes. In addition to being more eco-friendly, I have to admit that I love to make cute patterned napkins to add something special to their lunch away from home. This is an incredibly simple project and a great one for beginning sewers.
I know most of us are trying to cut down on disposable packaging when we send our kids off to school with packed lunches these days but sometimes packaging happens. Plastic cups, juice boxes, baggies, lids…it adds up after a while. You could recycle it at the curb OR you could save yourself a bazillion dollars at the craft store and make things with it!
