DIY Cutlery Wrap

by - January 25, 2020


Something I've wanted for quite some time now is a travel utensil holder. I don't go out much, but when I do, I'm out for most of the day.  I always carry with me a reusable water bottle, but for some darn reason, I always forget to pack my utensils! It happens more often than I would like to admit, and of course, I always feel guilty about it. That's why I finally decided to make my own cutlery wrap. I couldn't wait to share with you guys how I made it without using a sewing machine (of course, to save yourself some time, you should definitely use one.) But if you're like me and still don't know how to properly use a sewing machine, then this tutorial is just for you! It was really simple to make, so let's get started, shall we?



SUPPLIES NEEDED:


  • The fabric of choice ( I used two patterns)
  • Needle & Thread
  • Pins
  • Scissors 
  • Ruler
  • Chalk
  • Ribbon/String
INSTRUCTIONS:

1.) Start by cutting the fabrics into two rectangular shapes (approximately 10 inches x 14 inches.) Make sure to cut the fabric taller than the tallest utensil. 

Use two different kinds of patterns if you want the outside of your wrap to be different.




2.) Then pin the fabrics together with the right sides facing each other.




3.) Stitch 3 sides of the fabric together, make sure to leave a half-inch seam allowance between the edge.

 Leave one side of the cutlery wrap open.




4.) When you are done sewing, turn the fabric inside out. Fold the edges of the opening in, and sew in place.



5.) To create the pocket, measure a piece of fabric ( 6inches x 10 inches.) 




6.) Fold the edges over and hem the top side only.




7.) Pin the pocket to the cutlery wrap. Then, sew the sides and the bottom of the fabrics together.




8.) Use a ruler and chalk to mark even lines on the pocket.



9.) Then, stitch straight down the lines to create individual pockets.



10.) Finally, wrap it using a piece of lace or string.
