No more disposable utensils!
After making a utensil carrying case for my friend Unstuffed in trade for some yoga instruction, I decided to make one for myself. I designed it to fit these funny forkknifespoon combo thingys I was given a few years ago. They're a little awkward but they are lightweight which is a bonus because my purse is heavy enough! I also wanted to make sure there was enough room for my cloth napkin and some chopsticks.
I left one slot free in case I find anything else I'd like to carry around (the glass straws that Fake Plastic Fish uses come to mind).
If anyone wants to make their own case, I made it the same way as the crochet case I made a while ago just with slightly larger pieces of fabric (approx. 15"x11" for the large pieces and 6"x11" for the small pieces).
Like the crochet case, this utensil case is made with all second hand materials.
But enough about that, can we talk about this button? I totally love this button! It was in a bag of buttons that my sister-friend (known each other since we were babies so we are like sisters) bought for me on Ebay for Christmas. Thank you C! :)
