Cutlery Pocket

This has got to be one of my favourite 'to-dos' in our current issue! I just had to share it! Pop a little creativity into your day with this quick project!

Such a simple and cute way to lay out a special, girly picnic! Pop your cutlery for each guest inside each pocket. Maybe even add a flower or a little card!

Make it easy and just use hot glue or clear drying craft glue (hot glue is much better for those who are keen to get on with the project!) or practice your hand-sewing skills and use a running stitch instead of glue.

You'll need: 
back pocket from an old pair of jeans
glue - hot glue or clear craft glue (or needle and thread)

Cut the back pocket out of the jeans (keep the back fabric on it)
Trim the back fabric close to the edge of the pocket to neaten it up
Fold the pocket in half and mark the centre line on the back of the pocket
Use glue to attach pocket sides down the centre line (or stitch instead of glue)
Decorate the pocket by wrapping lace and/or ribbon around it. Anchor with glue or stitching
Attach buttons

Now, all there is to do - place a spoon, knife and fork in the pocket and head off for a picnic!!

PS You'll find this in Issue 12, available here

Happy crafting and being creative!
