in this blog post you can find detailed sewing instructions for beautiful felt cutlery pouches – perfect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve.
Just one more sleep and then… – the guests arrive! Sometimes you are so absorbed in your Christmas preparations that you forget the table decorations. That’s why today’s theme is a quick, minimalist (after all, there are other things to prepare), Scandinavian-style Christmas. As it is Saturday and also Christmas Eve, I hope you have a couple of nice scraps of felt at home. If not, the nearest fabric shop should still be open with any luck. But you don’t need much more than just a few remnants, because as promised, it’s quick and minimalist.
You will need:
- Felt scraps
- Fabric clips if required
The strip of felt is cut to make a long rectangle measuring 40 cm x 10 cm. This is then folded so that a square 10 cm x 10 cm remains free at the top, and secured with cloth clips.
Using straight stitch, the edges are topstitched presser-foot-width from the edge. Do not forget to secure the front and back of the seam.
That was basically everything – your cutlery pouch is finished. I decorated mine with a winter/Christmas transfer-print motif as well because I think it makes them even nicer.
Now all you need is a nice piece of wood and a few simple candles on the table and your minimalist Scandinavian-style decorated table is ready. Bon appetit and have a wonderful Christmas!
