I'm rejoining the Across The Pond Sew Along!

{Since I've gone back to work fulltime, I've cut back on monthly commitments.}

as this month's theme.
She has taken this table decor project

There's no need to stick to the rectangular shape.
Susie used wintery scraps to make
a mitten-shaped pouch!

You might have seen the Flatware Pouches
{and matching placemats}
I've made from Terry's Fabrics home dec prints,

Yesterday I managed to whip up a new set
of flatware pouches,
using regular quilting cotton
and a touch of lace.

I used 1/2 yard each of two coordinates
from an older Moda line by 3 Sisters...
Aster Manor.

{Pretty for any season, actually!}

{Like The Patchsmith, I added fusible fleece to the back of the outer fabric,
to add stability.}

If you'd like to try making some sweet table settings,

We hope you'll make something along with us

It's always more fun to sew when your
best friends are sewing along!

  1. This pretty little pouch would look good on the breakfast tray on Mom's birthday, Mothering Sunday or when recuperating. And so many excellent links.

  2. These are so much fun! I would have never thought about these.

  3. Love yours Amy....these are too cute, never thought about making them in different shapes like the mittens one, but I can see hearts, 4 leaf clovers,, bunnies and chicks, etc......

  4. Those pouches are such a great idea and they
    are very colourful. Love the ones made of pockets
    from jeans!!
    Cheers, Anita.
