I love using cloth napkins, and I love to dye old linens that have been given to me by friends and family. What I’ve never done is offered them for sale as it’s hard to make a matched set from recycled old linens. But I finally found a 100% cotton napkin blank that takes the dye very nicely, so I decided to indigo dye up a few sets. I literally was doing my last dipping and unclamping in the dark on Sunday night, so I had to wait until Monday morning to see what I had made:
I was really excited to see this! (Note, these are still soaking wet, the sprinklers re-wet them in the wee hours of the morning, they will dry lighter and with more visual texture).
I also indigo dyed some cotton twill tape so I could tie each set together!
