Jean Pocket Napkin/Silverware Holder
I have been cutting old jeans into scraps. Once I was finished this is all that was left of the jeans.
I have several projects planned and the first one used the back pockets. This was such an easy project. No sewing involved! I cut out the jean pockets following the stitching.
This is how I cut the top of the pocket. I used pinking shears to cut the top and cut low enough so that the cut line would not be seen from the front of the pocket.
I decided to us bandannas as napkins. I folded them into fourths to create a square and then placed the silverware at an angle.
I then folded the bandanna from one side until I rolled past the silverware. I then rolled the rest of the bandanna from the other side. I basically made the bandanna into a burrito.
I then folded up the bottom half of the bandanna and slid it into the jean pocket.
I thought these would be really cute to use on our outdoor table.
