For Our Moms

I was really happy with how these cloth napkins turned out so I thought I'd snap a few pictures before I wrapped these up for Mother's Day. The original idea came from Martha Stewart.

They were super easy and fun to make with random buttons and a little embroidery floss that I already had.

If it weren't for the fact that they'd be stained and ruined from jelly, cheetos, strawberries and whatever other messy foods my kiddos love to eat in about two days, I'd make some to keep.

My mom is under strict orders to not check my blog this week and I'm just hoping that my mother in law doesn't see this before she gets her package. But after these gifts are recieved, Happy Mother's Day! Thanks for all you have done for me, Mom. And all you have done for my hubbie, Mom-in-law. I love and appreciate you both so much. Thanks for dealing with all of our cheeto and jelly messes when we were little!
