Silverware pouch

Silverware pouch

Medium-weight cotton muslin
1/8" check red-and-white cotton gingham
4" of scarlet medium-sized rick-rack
4" of 5/8" white twill tape
4" of 3/4" red twill tape
12" of 1/4" ribbon
white and red thread

12" square of navy linen, with 1/4" fringed edges

Thrift-store finds, about 7" long

Cut one 15 1/2" x 3 3/4" strip of the muslin. Cut two 3 1/4" 3 3/4" pieces of gingham. Sew one gingham piece to each end of the muslin piece with a 1/4" seam allowance. Press allowances towards the gingham. Layer the white twill tape over the red twill tape about 5" down from one of the gingham/muslin seams and sew close to each long edge of the white twill tape. Center rick-rack over the twill tape and sew down the center. Trim off excess twill tape and rick-rack.

Fold muslin in half, right sides together, and sew along both long edges with a 1/4" seam allowance, leaving a 3/8" gap along one side of the gingham that is 1/4" from the gingham/muslim seam. This will allow for the drawstring. Finish all four edges of the seam allowance with an overcast stitch. Turn right-side out and iron. Press under 1/4" of the gingham edge and pin the gingham so that you will just catch the edge when you sew in the ditch on the right side of the muslin next to the muslin/gingham seam. It may be easier to turn the pouch inside-out in order to sew this step because the tube is narrow and you will be less likely to accidentally catch the far side of the cloth in your seam. Iron.

Top-stich the gingham 1/4" from the muslin/gingham seam and 5/8" from the muslin/gingham seam (creating a 3/8" tube). Attach a small safety pin to the ribbon and feed through the drawstring tube. Fold the ends of the ribbon back on themselves twice in order to hide the raw edges and hand-stitch closed. Tie the ends of the ribbon in an overhand knot.

61. Miss Daphne Folds Laundry
I chuckled the other day when I heard Daphne say, "Mom, can I please, PLEASE help you with laundry?" My two-year old actually begs me to let her help with the housework, and the truth is that I almost never say no if I can help it.

I was talking to a woman who has 5 kids the other day. Her only advice to me was that i invest as much into my kids while they are young as I can stand. She said that the time and energy would return itself a hundred times.

And so, despite the fact that I am completely neurotic about things needing to be at right angles, I have gotten into letting Daphne help. She now makes her own bed, folds the napkins in the laundry and puts the silverware away in the kitchen.

What I like the most is that it isn’t something I have to force her to do, it is something fun and exciting for her.
