Today I whipped up 30 burlap silverware holders to be used this upcoming summer for parties and b.b.q.'s...
I pulled out some of my lace and folded that over the edge of the silverware pocket for added strength to the holders. Since these are made from burlap, I felt this would possibly make these last a little longer.
Then it was just a matter of sewing the lace on each one and then zig-zagging around each piece to create the pockets. I practiced on some burlap scraps and tried each size of the zig-zag stitch until I found one that held a lot of the strings in place-- the wide zig-zag stitch was the one I ended up using.
Lastly, I added a twine bow to finish off each silverware holder. I used hot glue on the backside of the bows loops and none on the tails of the bows. They are not budging...
Each silverware holder I made was made using a 4"x14" piece of burlap. I folded up the pockets edge at 4 1/2" from the bottom before sewing up the sides. Easy~peasy.
That was fun.... now what to work on? *wink*
