Great for so many things!
I used these wonderful napkins for covering the arms on my daughter's wheelchair. They match so nicely with the Baroque Vera we use for a bag on the back of the chair. I also use a placemat for over her foot rest and head rest. And we just got the throw in Baroque, so everything coordinates! She's a Baroque girl on wheels! We get a lot of compliments on her Vera Bradley look.

So much more than tableware
I've been coming up with all sorts of ways to use these beauties. I started by buying one in my pattern to wear around my head as a bandana. Then I bought two others in patterns that complement my living room décor, sewed them together and made a double-sided throw pillow, one side for spring/summer, and the other for fall/winter. I also had the idea today of tying one to the handle of my suitcase for quick and easy identification at baggage claims. It seems the possibilities are endless when you start getting creative with these things!

Great for DIY Projects!
This napkin is not just a napkin! You can use it as fabric to Vera-ize your house!
I wanted to buy a throw pillow in Heather print to match my blanket, but it was temporarily sold out. I bought a napkin in Heather, took the stuffing out of a pillow that was on it's way to Goodwill, sewed the napkin to a backing of leftover lime-green linen fabric to make a pillowcase, and stuffed it. Voila! A DIY Vera Bradley pillow!
I also bought another napkin, and realized that it was the perfect size to cover the lid of my microfiber storage ottoman! All you need to do is buy a storage ottoman with a lid from the apartment and dorm section of a department store, and stitch or staple the napkin to the underside of the lid, folding the corners under. I have Vera Bradley-ed my house!
