Re-imagine & Renovate: In The Mood For Indigo - Banded Placemats & Napkins

Why do we love fabric? Let me count the ways. Our apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning, but it seemed like a good quote to emphasize what a difference fabric makes to the end result of a project. This Re-imagine & Renovate series is our way to show you how one project can turn out an unlimited number of ways, depending on the choices you make with fabrics, trims and notions. Today's set of matching placemats and napkins originally debuted as part of our Italiano Kitchen series, which had a playful, breakfast table casualness. In our new, rich tones of indigo, they're now ready for prime time as lovely dinner table linens or perhaps for a sophisticated Sunday brunch.

A big thanks to Fabric.com for co-sponsoring the series and providing all the fabric for today's Re-imagine & Renovate project.

Fabric.com is a regular go-to choice for us here at S4H. They have a huge selection, an easy-to-use shopping cart, and discount pricing every day. And, with 500,000+ yards of inventory, there's never a problem finding a great cut of fabric (or two or three or 12). Check out their Frequent Shopper Program. When you shop as a registered customer, your purchases automatically accumulate frequent shopper points, which can be redeemed for gift certificates.

Our fabric trio was provided by Fabric.com and is from the Heirloom collection by Dear Stella. We mixed and matched Cobblestone Indigo, Sunburst Indigo and Versailles Indigo.
