Fun with Fabric

I remember about a year ago, during CZT-V training, Maria said they don't use paper napkins.  She cuts up worn-out sheets to use for napkins.

Sounded good, but I'd never had sheets wear out.

Until recently.  Or, rather, not so recently.

I had one split right down the middle, so I tore it into some squares and set them on my desk so they'd be right here whenever I had the urge to tangle.  They've been here for ... Well, let's just say, "a long time."  Adding to my "vertical list" of unfinished projects.  (AKA: clutter.)

Well, tonight, I drove the girls to choir practice and brought them along.  I hate to admit that I spent more time thinking I should be tangling them  than I actually spent on the  tangling.

Are they my favorite project ever? No, but it was fun and I love the fact that I made something cool out of junk.

Who knows?  I had so much fun that if I have any more sheets split, I may just have to open up a custom napkin shop on Etsy.


  1. Very stylish. It's so sensible to be able to use your art wash it and use again!

  2. Beautiful work! I love working with letters and really love all the different ways you did them. Another project for my looooooooong list.

  3. Thanks to you both for the kudos. I asked DH if he liked the fancy napkins. His reply, "It's just more of your Zentangle stuff." Keeps me level-headed I guess.


Your comments brighten my day. Thanks.
