I have spent the day making a fun little cutlery placemat roll.
Now in the world of COVID we have a no share food policy or sharing of cutlery. How many times do we buy takeaway and don't like using the plastic cutlery or we sit at a dirty public picnic table in the park. Well this idea is just perfect.
I have made this placemat so I can take it to my sewing group for our sit n sew days .... When not in lockdown. I will need to go to an op shop to buy a cutlery set for one so I can have it in the pocket permanently.
I started with this pile of selvedges scraps
I have put a zipper pocket in it so the cutlery doesn't fall out when you roll it up. If it gets dirty, just wash it when you get home.
I used up some selvedge and batting scraps so it didn't really cost anything.
and because it is food related I used a fun fabric for the backing.
Now I can have it rolled up at the bottom of my sewing bag ready whenever needed.
