k a t e l o v e s m e A Beautiful Mess I love using cloth napkins to dress up our dinner table, and through the years I've grown even more fond of their sustainability and cost effectiveness. Though, I'm not sure how cost effective it is if you keep buying more and more cloth napkins each year! This holiday season I thought it would be fun to look at how I could dress up the napkins I already own to give them an extra festive vibe. Check out three simple ways you can give new life to your table linens. Ribbon Trimmed Napkin This look is so (no sew) simple! Supplies:-ribbon-heat bond in width of ribbon-cloth napkin (buy mine here)-iron-fabric scissors (not shown above) Step One: Trim pieces of your ribbon to be about 1.5 inches longer than the width of your napkins. Step Two: Fold down the edges of each ribbon segment about 1/4" and iron flat. Step Three: Iron the heat bond to the ribbon (pressing with hot iron for two seconds), then peel off the paper backing. Pom-Pom Trimmed Napkin This is my favorite napkin style by far!
The Sartorialist Dress Pant Sweatpants - Betabrand - StumbleUpon Dress Pant Sweatpants: Boardroom Style, Bedroom Comfort One of our very favorite things (besides burritos) is taking fantastic fabrics and using them in interesting new ways. Like when we took superfine merino wool and transformed it into an Executive Pinstripe Hoodie. Now here’s our latest curious combination of designs and materials: Dress Pant Sweatpants. At first glance, Dress Pant Sweatpants look like fine charcoal wool trousers. We made ‘em from high-end French terry, which has a subtle heather texture similar to fine suit cloth. More than a pair of comfy sweatpants, they're an experiment in sartorial subterfuge. In the office or on the road, rest assured that these dressy sweatpants will make any day feel like Casual Friday. Dress Pant Sweatpants: great for dressing up or dressing down.
