Too Much Time On My Hands
Time to get crafty and rock our some fun, unique, upcycled, inspiring, thrifty, and beautiful creations
very cute and resourceful!
OMG! This is a great idea too. So many ideas here, so little time. Although I don't have too much time on my hands, I think I'll puruse the closets of a few family members and make some napkins. New follower!
I've managed to eliminate all paper goods in my house except for napkins and TP. I thought about using cloth napkins, but I've only ever had "nice" cloth napkins that I hated to soil. This is such a fabulous idea and a handy way to re-purpose my husband's shirts he no longer likes. Thanks for sharing!

Oh my gosh so cute! What kind of material are those shirts? Just regular cotton or are they flannel?
Wow, great idea! THanks for sharing.
Nice Idea. I think I have just the shirt in mind.
This is fabulous! I was just thinking I need to find a way to make my own cloth napkins…they are so spendy but I love using them everyday. I did a cloth "papertowel" post to reduce papertowel use and spreading germs. Check it out if you are interested:http://ponderedprimedperfected.blogspot.com/2011/11/downfall-of-paper-towel.html
What a cute idea:)
Well, how cleaver is this! Perfect for non-sewers (like me..)
Thanks for sharing, funny your husband is going to be shirtless!Mine has way too many, Well I think so! Can you imagine if thehubs went into our clothes and started cutting
Those are really cute! Have you tried washing them, do they wash well?
This is a wonderful idea for napkins. Thanks for sharing. I'm a new follower, I would luv for you to drop by when you have a chance.
that looks so pretty, I loved the edges I'd love it if you would add this to my link party at http://raegunwear.blogspot.com/2011/11/what-i-wore-wednesdays-1.html
Those are so adorable. Love the frayed edges. I hope you will link these up to More the Merrier Monday. Jamiehttp://diyhshp.blogspot.com/
P.S. I have another giveaway going on right now. Would love you to stop by and check it out.
You had me at no-sew! This is great…I might have to hit up my local thrift store for some shirts…my hubby doesn't have any I'd like to turn into nampkins!
I'd love for you to link up and share: http://tutusandteaparties.blogspot.com/2011/11/pinteresting-linky-party-week-fourteen.html
great idea, how do they wash?
Excellent idea and love how it is an upcycle idea too!! Great gift as well. Thanks so much for linking to Strictly Homemade Tuesday!!
Oh I’m glad I stumbled onto your little blog. I see this post is kinda old. But I never though of making napkins this way. I had thought how could I make napkins and from what recycled fabric during Xmas time to do gifts. But alas came up w/ nothing. Too bad my bf doesn’t wear button downs. But I think it’s still eco-conscious to buy the used shirts from a thrift store… oh the possibilities!
I agree, it is still a great idea to buy thrift store shirts for this project!
I just came across this site for no sew cloth napkins at the perfect time…We’re doing a Farm to Table Dinner for 100 people in Sept for our towns Farmer’s Market and looking for inexpensive ways to dress up our tables…we get the tablecloths free from a town group, but had to rent napkins last year. So this has inspired us to be creative with little cost to us! Thanks for sharing!
Oh, that will be just perfect! It will look great with all different colors and patterns of shirts too!
