Handy little gift for your co-workers

These combo napkin/flatware holders are so handy and easy to make.
Several years ago I made each of my co-workers one of these napkins for Christmas.
We were forever having luncheons at work and always coming up short on plasticware or someone would order take-out and the fork, knife or spoon was missing.
I was hoping this would solve the problem of searching around the office looking for a fork or napkin.
Since I made these napkins prior to owning an embroidery machine I chose a color or pattern of fabric I thought each individual would like. 
I included flatware in each similar to these.
After making 23 of these napkins, Mr. Fisherman decided he wanted one.
Since the Florida Gators are our only college team in Florida (just kidding FSU fans) I chose Florida Gator fabric for Mr. Fisherman's napkin.
Look how easy they roll up...

I think most of my co-workers just used the napkin to store the flatware and keep it clean in their desk draws.
Either way, these little napkins turned out to be handy little gifts.
 I think these would be fun to make for a picnic or party.
What do you think?

I love mine and use it all the time.!
Not to mention it makes one of my co-workers mad, stinking FSU fans.???????
