Easy DIY: Make Your Own Pattern

diy-pattern-1

I have decided that I am grown-up enough to own and use cloth napkins.  With this in mind and inspired by linens with neon piping spotted at ABC Home (which were priced at $35 per napkin…PER napkin), I went on an endless search for hot pink patterned table linens.  Unfortunately, the only patterns I discovered were all a little too “themey”, lots of Christmas trees and turkey prints…add a cat sweater and you’ve hit the trifecta.

His cool charisma, black rimmed glasses, which he wears for the looks not function, and scarf says “Yes, I drink beer but only local microbrews…and can you point me to the nearest thrift store?” This cute little guy was hard to resist and given that it was made by a local DC artist, I snatched him up. Is this life imitating art? Continue reading “Hipster”
