Stocking Cutlery Holder
Cutlery holders are a great idea for Christmas sewing projects this year! It's the perfect way to dress you're Christmas table with a personalised Christmas touch.
What you will need:
Fat quarter set by The Craft Cotton Company in Canvas Stag
Ribbon to make bows
First, cut out your template and fabrics:
Draw and cut out paper template for the stocking. These can be any size you choose to make them; depending on how much cutlery you need to put in them.
Cut out the fabric. For each stocking you will need 2 pieces of the same for the front and back, and two pieces of a different fabric for the lining. When cutting out the fabric for the front and back of the main stocking pieces and the lining pieces, make sure you cut out one piece of fabric right side facing up and the other with right side facing down.
Next, sew the fabrics together:
Sew the front and back pieces with right sides facing together.
Sew the lining pieces with right sides facing together.
Now, sew in the lining:
Turn the lining so it's right sides are facing out and place into the un-turned stocking so that the right sides of the stocking lining are facing the right sides of the outer stocking.
Line up and pin the top edges of the lining and stocking.
Sew around the top edge leaving a 3 cm gap un-sewn.
Turn the stocking out the right way through the un-sewn gap on the top edge. Push the lining into the stocking.
Finally, slip-stitch and add bow:
Fold in the top un-sewn edges and slip stitch close the gap.
Make bows and sew to the top of the stocking.
