Christmas Cutlery Pockets

A Christmassy project I have been working on recently is some Christmas cutlery cutlery pockets pouch holder

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. christmas cutlery pockets pouch holder

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.

Cutting Out

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.

Sewing Up

1. Sew the trim to the pocket cutlery pockets pouch holder

2. With the right sides together, join the pocket outer to the lining along the top edge. Trim the seam, turn it the right way out and cutlery pockets pouch holderchristmas cutlery pockets pouch holderchristmas cutlery pockets pouch holder

4. Put the other larger rectangle on top facing down. Pin, then sew around the sides and the bottom cutlery pockets pouch holder

5. Turn it the right way out and run the iron over cutlery pockets pouch holder

6. Tuck the raw edges at the top inwards. Pin, then top stitch all the way cutlery pockets pouch holder

I made them all the same to avoid my boys arguing but you could mix them up a bit, especially if you have odds and ends of Christmas fabric left over from other cutlery pockets pouch holderchristmas cutlery pockets pouch holderchristmas cutlery pockets pouch holder
