Today I am sharing a tutorial with you where you can make your own Burlap Lace Utensil Holders.This is an easy fall crafting project that’s quick! Perfect for a Thanksgiving table decor setting. But, you can create these anytime for your table decor at home or for an event such as a rustic wedding or even a special dinner for two. If you are new to sewing this project is perfect as it is super easy, all straight stitching & no pattern needed. Before you know it you will be making a batch of these burlap utensil holders for yourself & even as gifts. If you don’t sew you can find some fabric glue or even use a hot glue gun & create them just by gluing. Just make sure you use glue that dries invisible, is extra strength & works well on fabric.
Now onto the Burlap Utensil Diy!
Supplies you will need for this diy:
- burlap (woven or any type will do) Cut to: Total Size: 6 inches wide x 13 3/4″ for each one
- thread (wheat or light color)
- cardboard or poster board to make template (optional)
- straight pins
- lace (size about 1-1/2″)
1. First thing is either make out a template or just measure & cut one using it as a template for the rest. The measurements I used leave enough room to add a napkin into them. Total Size: 6 inches wide x 13 3/4″ for each one you want to make. I made 8 so I cut this size 8 times.
2. Next cut your lace pieces about 6 1/2″ for each one. (OR) You can put lace into place folding lace across then tuck under edge pin & cut to size.To find placement just fold up your burlap fabric about 4-3/4″ (but, do not sew it yet) I placed mine exactly one inch from where bottom was going to be & a little over 1-1/2 inch from where #2 is in the photograph & opening of utensil holder pocket is.
As you see you fold up your 6 x 12- 3/4 ” fabric 4-1/2″ to create the pocket. All sewing prior to third step is done without folding for the pocket as shown in image below. (envision your total size burlap flat unfolded to do first steps, hope that makes sense)
3. Once you do steps one & two you fold up burlap & pin at each side in place start at one corner & go the entire way around. It isn’t necessary to sew across the bottom, sew along one side, across top & down the other side like it’s a u shape. I did this so the burlap edges wouldn’t unravel & to make the fold of pocket.
When your sewing the lace onto burlap you sew across the side edges (on each side) where you will sew around a final time. If you have questions just ask & I’ll try to answer them.
Now you can do this assembly style after you make one seeing how easy it is to sew up! Sometimes if you are newer to sewing it’s easier to a video or more detailed photos, but I hope I explained it well enough for you to try.
Now your all ready to have some rustic decor to your festive table top. The lace I used was vintage I had of my grandmas. I know just by changing the type of lace you use you can alter the look & feel of these. If you make some I’d love to see them! You can email me or leave me link in comments or join in the weekly party.
