4th of July utensil holder pocket

When I saw this cute utensil holder pocket on Pinterest I knew I wanted to make them for the 4th of July.

Maddiebella gives a great tutorial on how to make her upholstery webbing utensil holders.  So this weekend I purchased some upholstery webbing like she used but put my own 4th of July spin on the utensil pocket holders

They were pretty simple and inexpensive to make, and the best part is that I can use them year after year.  I thought I would put a quick tutorial together for you in case you get the urge to make some of your own. I am going to give you the supplies to make just one.  That way you can just multiply the numbers by how many you want to make.

Supplies to make utensil pocket holder

12″ of Upholstery webbing for each utensil pocket {I got mine at Joanns for .47 cents a yard with my 40% off coupon}

5″ of half inch wide decorative ribbon {you can use what ever width you want,  it really doesn’t matter}

Glue stick

I used my silhouette machine to cut out my stencils in the American Typewriter font. But you can easily achieve the same results by using 4th of July rubber stamps and ink, like these from Hobby Lobby4th of july stamps

Sewing machine {or if you want a no-sew method use fabric glue or a hot glue gun}

  • Cut your Upholstery tape 12″ and fold over from the bottom 4 1/2″
  • Sew the sides closed {I used a white thread and made a zig zag stitch } If your doing the no-sew method use your glue gun or fabric glue to adhere the sides
  • To adhere the ribbon, run your glue stick on the back of the ribbon and place on the front of the folded pocket, wrapping it around the backside
  • Stamp or stencil the front {I used Real Blue acrylic paint for my stencil
