Napkins for my Daughter’s Wedding

My daughter is getting married in November and requested 30 napkins in the wedding’s color scheme “Wisteria”.

This is 22/2 Cottoline, 420 warp threads in two warps, 8.4 yd each. It is a plain weave with the pattern being a point twill with 4 threads of white and one gold thread between the two patterns. All napkins were machine-sewn, washed and ironed;  there was about 10 % shrinkage, which I accounted for in the initial width and length.

A fun project, although I am now ready to weave something else for a change.

First of 2 pieces from same cotton 10/2 warp from Lunatic Fringe.

Baby blanket for newborn grandchild Luca.  It is a 4 shaft waffle weave that shrunk considerably but is soft and light.

Second pieces is the same warp with a rose path pattern that was turned into a tunic with flounce sleeves. I created the tunic for my Canada Sewing Course Principles of Design. It is warm but comfy!
