Linen pants to summer napkins

One of the glorious benefits of summer is the lush growing plants. We are growing quite a few things in the garden, including herbs. We took some of the Basil and Sage leaves and an old pair of linen pants and created the perfect linen summer napkin.

We cut the pants to create 4 napkins, sewed a seam around the outside and frayed the ends with a pin. The pin loosens the fibers and then you can pull them out to create the fray. Then we coated the leaf with fabric paint and rolled it onto the linen with a brayer.

What is really nice about these napkins is that, if you pull them out in the dead of Winter, it will remind you of all the warmth and sweet smells of Summer.
