It's all in that little elastic band!
Today let me explain in further details how the smart squares and the napkins work!
In the reverse of the smart squares and the napkins, in a corner, I have inserted a little elastic band.
This elastic band gives you more options and a simple square of fabric becomes a lot more interesting!
You can use it :
1- as a regular muslin square or napkin (on your child's knees).
2- as a bandana: you fold the square into a triangle (leaving the elastic at one of the two corners) and pass one end of the triangle into the loop of the elastic in order to make a bandana around your child's neck.
3- as a neck napkin: you leave the square unfolded and pass the opposite corner of the elastic in the elastic's loop in order to make a long napkin.
The elastics are from Japan and are very resistent to use, hot water and tumble dryer. You can wash the muslin squares and napkins very frequently, they are made of 100% cotton. As a matter of fact, the more you will wash them, the softer they will become!
You can choose from 4 different colors for the smart squares : white, cream, grey and soft pink, and 2 colors for the gingham napkins : navy and pink. They measure 20 x 20 inches (50 x 50 cm).
