Holiday side-step -

Before I check my stash for fabric for potholders - 
I thought I would try making some napkins - 
So I found a set of 12 fat quarters - 
Enough for 6 double-sided napkins - 

There are plenty of tutorials on the internet - 
So I found one I liked - 

And made a "test" napkin - 
Cutting my squares at 14" - 
Except for the back of this one - 
I cut it short - 
So BOB told me to "splice it" - 
Unless I wanted to make 5 napkins - 
Instead of 6 - 
And who wants/needs 5 napkins - LOL - 

So I spliced it - 
And you can't really tell - 
Unless you know to look for it - LOL - ;)) 

 I have all of the 14" squares cut out - 
And paired up - 
So I can use them as tweens* - 
While I play with my LEFT-EZE Rule™

And make some potholders -
If you're LEFT-Handed - 
And don't have a LEFT-EZE Rule™ yet -

You're cutting stuff the HARD way -
I have been told - 
And have to agree - 
That it is a "game-changer" - LOL - ;))

If you want to play along - 

As I make some potholders - 

I'll show you how to use the ruler - 

And how to make some nifty little blocks - 

It should be fun -
And you only have to make ONE block - 
For a potholder - 
PLUS - I have extended the FREE shipping - 
Until the end of the month -
So - 
If you want one - 
And you know you do - LOL - 
Or if you want something nice for a LEFT-Handed quilter - 
On your gift list - 
Order it before Wednesday -
To take advantage of the FREE Shipping - 
As they say - that's an $8.75 value - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta - gotta sew - 
*NOTE: -
"Tweens" - some people call them "leaders and enders" - 
but that's a mouthful and much too long to say - 
besides - I sew them be"TWEEN" other stuff - 
so that's what I call them - LOL - ))

Ha ha....thanks for explaining "tweens" - I was thinking "between projects."

Five napkins would have been just fine growing up - two parents and five kids. But then again...two brothers and a dad could either mean no need of napkins (they have sleeves!) or more (boys are messy)? The fabrics seem perfect, too!

They all would work, 5,6, or any number. I would just make ‘em without counting them. Numbers usually just ruin things for me. Oh, and I still say “Leaders and Enders”, but that’s just me always doing things the hard way!
