No Sew Ribbon Utensil Holder DIY

No-Sew Ribbon Utensil Holder DIY
We all know that the most important and meaningful times are spent with family! At the moment, we are sheltering at home and practicing social distancing. We pray for solutions and an end to this terrible pandemic. While we are hunkering down, it's important not to forget the little things that help to brighten our days. And if you didn't realize, it's so easy to set a beautiful table, making mealtimes special and decorative with items we have on hand like this no-sew ribbon utensil holder!

Supplies needed to make this:
4" wide Ribbon
1.5" Ribbon
Fabri-Tac fabric glue
 Begin by cutting a strip of 4" wide ribbon fifteen inches long.  The ribbon I'm using is wired, but any wide ribbon will work. Fold both ends over 1/4 inch. Press to close with the ribbon wire or add glue to seal ends. Then fold bottom up five inches to make a pocket.  
Add Fabri-Tac fabric glue to side edges and press together to seal and close. It takes just a few seconds for the fabric glue to set and dry.
Add a small decorative bow with dovetails to embellish the pocket - I used my Mini Bowdabra to make one, but you can easily make it by hand using two strips of ribbon - one, folded into loops and the other, dovetailing the ends - and then tying together with wire from the ribbon. 
So quick and easy!
What a pretty handmade flatware holder! 
 So easy to dress up your table setting with this adorable 
no-sew ribbon utensil holder!
Have fun making lots!

  3. Hi Gail,
    This is so pretty and functional too, a real win, win! I just love projects like this.
    I am always searching for ways to glue fabric and I am going to make a note right now of Fabric Tac fabric glue.
    So enjoyed catching up with you and sharing in the creative joy of crafting too!

  4. This is such a nice table setting Gail. I have been planning on sewing some for our home, but haven't gotten it done yet. Beautiful job.

  5. I love the colors of your utensil holder!! Both purples and greens are my favorite!! And the bowdabra looks like a very handy gadget.


  6. Gail, I love this idea. Your ribbons are both so beautiful and what a sweet presentation for the table. Now I need to get the craft store and maybe get one of those bowdabra tools.
