Thanksgiving Silverware Bag

Thanksgiving brings out the tradition in us.  Vintage plates, linens that aren't quite vintage (but have been around for some time), dishes that we serve every year.  You would think it would be boring, but I look forward to it every year!   I do change the placecard holders (I'll be showing those later) and maybe the decorations on the table.

Here is another idea - how about a Thanksgiving Silverware Bag?  Nicecrane Designs has some gorgeous images to help you create for Thanksgiving.  The kids carving pumpkins is one of my favorites. 

A Little Tip

 You'll notice that the lace is added to the bottom of the muslin bag.  I have a little tip to make it easier to sew.  It's so hard to get  to the (almost) bottom of the bag with a needle.

Just stick a piece of cardstock in the bag!  

That way when you are sewing on the lace and buttons you won't pick up the back of the bag.

Aren't the leaves pretty?  They arrived the other day from Speckled Egg.  

Until November 20th all the Christmas Balls at Nicecrane Designs are 50% off!  Use code:  CHRISTMAS2013

I used a couple of the Christmas Ball images on my snowflakes which you can see here.

Visions of Sugarplums will arrive on December 2nd.  Check out this post to see how to get an early entry for the grand prize.  Nicecrane Designs is one of the sponsors of Visions of Sugarplums -  thank you, Ignacio!
