These carriers are easy to make and provide a useful way to provide cutlery at a picnic or bbq. The towel can be used as a napkin as well. If you have access to an Ocean State Job Lot, these 100% cotton towels were 4 for $2.00. Can't beat the price.
Start with a standard dish towel about 15 x 24 1/2. Lay the towel, pattern side down, and fold up 7" from the 15" side. With a sewing machine, stitch one end of the folded towel closed. Next, fold the ribbon in half; sandwich about 1/2 inch of the ribbon's fold into the towel's other open side. Sew together to form one large pocket.
Form the three 2 1/2" pockets by sewing vertical lines through folded towel.
The top of the towel will be a flap to cover the silverware once you roll the tote. Tie the ribbon around the roll to close.
