Silverware Holder

While I debate what project I want to start next {and wait on some paint and other supplies}, I found I had a few of these utensil transfers I previously printed off that Debbie from Confessions of a Plate Addict had shared.

Debbie did tea towels with hers and they came out great.  The silverware part of the graphic is from The Graphics Fairy.  I decided to use the graphic to make silverware holders.  I took a scrap of Osnaberg fabric and played around with the lay-out, using a fork, knife and spoon for sizing.  Once I had a size I was happy with, I sewed up one end and the one long side.  {I cut the fabric folded over so I saved sewing one of the long sides}.  Turn so that the seam is on the inside.

I ironed it at this point and then brought my bottom end up for the pocket.  I cut the fabric so I would have this lovely fringed selvage end for the pocket top.

Once I sewed the pocket, I did the iron on transfer.

All set to grace the table!

This was a very quick and easy project.  If you don’t sew, try fabric glue or iron-on hem tape.

I’m having a special “thank you” giveaway for my followers here, through August 4, 2012!

So pretty! I have only tried an iron on transfer once and it ended up flaking off. I will have to give it another try one of these days.

I like the fringed end, Kathy. Nice design.

Kathy, that is a great idea and you did a very neat job of sewing them. I like the fabric and transfer that you used but I can imagine how cute it would be to make sets of them in lots of patterns and colors. The nice thing about yours is that they go with just about everything.---- Shannon
