Back-to-School Cloth Napkins

This afternoon I whipped up these charming cloth napkins for my school lunchbox.  Yes, I am a teacher and yes, they complement my lime green lunch bag.  (My Mom will tell you - ever since I was in kindergarten I needed everything to match - from my rainbow belt to my undergarments to my shoes.  Some things never change.)

I used fabric scraps, so all my napkins are different size squares, but I am okay with that, I wanted to practice sewing mitered corners. The tutorial from Buddy and Buggy has step-by-step directions with pictures, making it super easy to follow; she gives you instructions for sewing napkins with or without mitered corners.  I can't wait to bring these to school, or should I say work!
