The problem with being a crafty person is that you often end up hoarding craft supplies.
In an effort to prevent the situation from becoming completely out of hand, I try to only buy fabric when I have a specific project in mind.
Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I bought some Scandinavian inspired fabric to “make some Christmas stuff”. That was a specific as it got. I have made a stocking (you can read about that here) and I have decided that a nice way to use some more of it is to make some cutlery pockets for the table on Christmas Day.
These Christmas cutlery pockets are very quick and easy to make, so if you need to make a lot of them, it shouldn’t take too long. I needed to make 6 and I completed each stage for all 6 before moving on to the next stage.
How to Make Christmas Cutlery Pockets
You Will Need: cotton fabric in 2 or 3 designs (I had half a metre in 3 designs and that was way more than I needed!), ribbon or trim, ruler and pencil, usual sewing supplies.
For the main part of the pocket, you will need to cut a front piece and a back piece measuring 12 cm x 26 cm. I drew the rectangle onto a piece of paper first and used that as a template.
For the pocket section, you will need 1 pocket outer and 1 pocket lining, measuring 12 cm x 16 cm.
