Everyday sunshine

Everyday Sunshine - dyed vintage linen napkins.

Everyday Sunshine – dyed vintage linen napkins.

A day of waiting needed to be filled and so I finally dyed a pair of linen napkins as a belated wedding present. The napkins are a couple of pieces from a hoard of vintage linen that I inherited from my grandmother.

Tim and I have a set of everyday linen napkins which are made out of fabric  from IKEA. They are nowhere as glamourous as this pair, but having cloth napkins designated for everyday use has made most meals feel that little more special.  Hopefully the couple who receive this pair enjoy the splash of sunshine in their kitchen while they eat their muesli.

The linen was dyed with Procion MX dyes (5% of fabric weight – 1:1 004 Lemon Yellow : 010 Golden Yellow).
