DIRECTIONS:

DETERMINE FABRIC YARDAGE:
(See PDF for detailed measurement guide.)

  1. To determine fabric width: measure the width of each piece of silverware; add 1/2". Multiply by number of pieces in one keeper and add 1". For example:
    If one fork measures 1-1/4", then 1-1/4"+ 1/2"= 1-3/4".
    If there are 8 forks in the set, 1-3/4" x 8 = 14" + 1"= 15" fabric width.
  2. To determine fabric length: measure length of each piece of silverware x 2 + 4". For example:
    If one fork measures 8", then 8" x 2 = 16" + 4" = 20" fabric length.
  3. Cut silver cloth to 15"x20". Cut coordinating fabric 1" larger than silver cloth dimensions, 16"x21".

CONSTRUCTION:

  1. Pin silver cloth and fabric wrong sides together with 1/2" of fabric extending past silver cloth.
  2. Fold edge of fabric in 1/4", then over silver cloth 1/4" to create a narrow hem enclosing silver cloth.
  3. Fold up 3/4 of the length of each silverware piece. Pin. Mark sewing lines for each piece with disappearing ink and stitch.
  4. Cut a 1-1/4"x24" strip of fabric, fold in half, bring edges to center, fold again and edge stitch. Stitch center to edge of silver keeper.
