I can feel the foot pedal with my bare/sock foot so I always kick that shoe/slipper off!
My friend Kimie had given me homemade cloth napkins made from old sheets; I sewed my current favorite fabric across a bunch of them and have great fall/Thanksgiving napkins!
I cut 1 1/2" strips
Sewed them 1 1/2" up from the bottom of each napkin. I sewed two times around about 1/8" in from the edge and again about an 1/8" from the first seam.
