1 Fold back the cuff of the cream jumper and cut it off (so you have a wide cuff with a fold in the mid­dle). Lay the cuff on the red fab­ric and draw a mit­ten shape below it to the cor­rect size, then cut out two mit­ten pieces. 2 Pin the two mit­ten pieces to­gether and stitch around the edge us­ing white em­broi­dery thread in a blan­ket stitch. Pin the cuff on top and stitch the cut end to the mit­ten open­ing, then fold the cuff down to hide the stitch­ing. Add a but­ton to stop the cuff un­fold­ing. Fill the pouch with your cut­lery, plus a lit­tle sprig of green­ery, such as rose­mary, for the per­fect fin­ish­ing touch.

Cus­tomise your pouches with the ini­tials of fam­ily mem­bers for a per­sonal touch that will make your ta­ble su­per-spe­cial
