We received one for a wedding gift, but it was worn out a long time ago.
On a recent shopping trip to Walmart, I found this on sale for $5.
I decided to make my own accessories.
I started with 3 dishtowel purchased for $3.99
and some ribbon that I already had from another project.
The first thing I made was a silverware holder.
I folded one of the dishtowels over by 1/3.
Then I measured out the placement for the silverware
adding a chalk line to act as a sewing guide.
I then added the finishing touch by placing a pretty ribbon around it.
I also wanted a convenient way to transport the dirty silverware and dishes home after picnics, so I took another dishtowel and sewed the sides and bottom together forming a bag. I finished it off by adding a ribbon for a drawstring. When the bag is dirty after use, all you need to do is throw it in the washing machine.
My total cost for the project ~ $8.99
Doesn't it make you want to have a summer picnic?
