Oh Little Puffs of Dandelion,

Your mama’s current stash of fabric napkins is somewhat sad-looking, and very plain. With Ramadhan less than 4 months away, it would be nice to have some *new* fabric napkins to bring out!

For absolutely no particular reason, it seems that Jumada al-Awwal is a good time to start that fabric napkin challenge sew-along I mentioned last week (LookBook Fabric Napkin Inspiration).

Readers are invited to participate. Comment that you will be joining us. And update us on your progress. Photos add a nice touch.

The Sew-Along starts next Monday! This will give you time to get your self, your supplies, and your schedules in order.

Here are all the pretty details:
