Oxford Napkins

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, April 2008


Make lovely cloth napkins out of your worn oxford shirts -- not only will they look great on your dinner table, but they'll also reduce the need for paper products. Faded plaids and checked patterns look especially great.


  • Old oxford shirts

  • Scissors

  • Ruler

  • Needle and thread


  1. Wash the oxford shirts well. Cut the clean fabric into uniformly sized pieces, about 12 inches square.

  2. Either leave the edges frayed, or sew a hem for a cleaner look.
