Thanksgiving Linens

I went to Walmart the other day to purchase a tablecloth and napkins. After pricing the napkins and then looking at fabric, I found it would be cheaper to make the napkins.

I bought some beautiful, deep red linen. After cutting it out and trying to hem it, I realized that the napkins were going to be a bit too small.

So I pulled out some fall fabric that I had and made some binding.

Here is the final result. There is more red in the binding than shows up in this picture.

The colors look great with the tablecloth I chose.

I've had a very productive week - the centerpiece is finished, the linens are set and most of my shopping is done. For more Thanksgiving ideas and posts, check out Kelli's blog.
