Cutlery pockets

An easy, especially to those familiar with sewing, project to create cutlery pockets to take away cutlery.

Place and wrap your cutlery in the pocket together with a napkin makes an easy and well-presented way to have them in picknics, barbeques in the garden or any gathering.

Keep the cutlery pockets simple or decorate them with stamps and Tattered Angels mists. Tie a bow, a ribbon or some burlap fringe and match them to any style on your event.

Cannot sew? No problem use a fabric glue to seal the canvas cutlery pockets.

First sew the canvas around to secure from fringing. If you want, you can use some glue to protect it even further. Then fold at about 4 and 1/2 in and sew (or glue) on the left and right side. Finally, following the dimensions in the photo create pockets for the cutlery. You can alter the dimensions depending on the cutlery you will use.
