I picked up four little linen cocktail napkins at HomeSense last week. They were pretty unremarkable and drab but a great soft washed linen fabric.
One of my favourite things is lettering, monograms or text on linens and if you add in a Nova Scotia reference, even better. So, of course, I had to tart up my drab little napkins with some text.
I used a permanent black marker and traced over a computer print-out of four Nova Scotia county names against a window. Remember what you did as a kid? Tape the print-out up and then tape up the fabric and viola… instant lightbox.
I am absolutely going to make more of these in blue and white for the summer.
