“Tutorial: How To Make A DIY Utensilo” by Barbara from Mermaids HatBox
What Colour(s) Inspired This Tutorial?
Green and red burlap.
UTENSILO – Simple and fast to sew! This is a tutorial for a very simple but nice Utensilo. I sew it from the material of an old Coffee Bean Bag. You can use every other fabrics.
4 buttons (I use hearts from birch bark that I have from my autumn decorations)
**I use 3 fabrics, because the burlap is very unstable. I cut out a piece of cotton and sew it on the back side of the burlap.
*** If you use only lightweight fabrics, stabilize with Bondaweb- Vliseline
Cut out squares of fabrics. I cut out a 30x30cm square. But you can cut any size as long as they are all the same size.
Sew: I sew the light cotton on the back side of the burlap. Then lay the burlap and the checkered fabric right side on right side. Sew around, but don’t forget to let a piece of 5 cm open. Cut off a triangle on the four corners. Turn the inside through the opening . Fold the fabric on the open side carefully inwards. Iron the square. Sew around with a distance of ca 0,75 cm.
Folding: Mark the middle of each side Then from the middle 6 cm on each side. Take the top and add the two 6cm markings on the corner inward together. Sew this point together. Do this on the four corners. Take the corner and pull it outside over the edge. Fasten the corner with a button. Ready!!!!
