Some of you have asked for a tutorial for making the simple little cutlery bag. Sugarplum, my Christmas kitty, insisted on showing you all the steps, so I let her. When you see how easy this is, you'll say, "Oh, of course! How simple!!"
1. Cut a rectangle from your burlap that is 4 1/2" x 7 1/2". At one short end, zig zag across the end of each piece (about 1 1/2" from the top) using contrasting thread. Round off the bottom corners at
the other end. Sew two long sides, starting at the zig zag stitch at the top, going around the rounded bottom, and ending at the zig zag stitch on the other side\. Reinforce with a zig-zag stitch. Pull threads out at the top to leave a fringed edge.
2. Turn inside out.
3. Press well.
4. Place cutlery in the bag and tie with a gingham ribbon to hold them in. Put a candy cane in the ribbon for a little extra pop of color!
5. All finished!
Here's one on the burlap place mat.
(This little bear placemat will be a PDF pattern as soon as our computer issues are sorted out! Yes, we're on computer number 3! I have two computers to send back right now and another one coming. They arrive with issues! We're talking EXPENSIVE computers, too. This is getting frustrating, to say the least! My husband has talked to Dell support lately more than he's talked to me! Before long he'll adopt an Indian accent! If any of you work for Dell, I'd be happy to do an honest review if you can just get me a free working computer delivered to my house! :-) We've been without a computer since June because of this.)
Thank you for stopping by today! (Sorry about the fussing!)
