  • iron, sewing machine


  • fabric I used 2 fabrics, but you can use the same for both sides
  • thread
  • pins
  • sewing machine
  • leather cord you can also use ribbon, binding tape, or anything else that you can wrap around the roll


  • Step 1: Cut your fabric.
  • Start by cutting your fabric into two 7” x 24” rectangles.
  • Step 2: Sew along the edges.
  • With faces of the fabric together, pin and sew along 3 of the edges leaving one of the short sides open. This open edge will become the closing flap.
  • Step 3: Flip and iron seams flat.
  • Turn your piece inside out and iron the edges down. Fold the open piece inward about 1/2” and iron flat.
  • Step 4: Sew finishing stitches and wrap.
  • Sew the open edge closed. Then, fold the other side up to create the slots for your utensils. Pin the leather cord (or whatever you’re using to wrap your roll) on one of the sides to be sewn in the seam. Sew the sides of the pocket about 1/4” from the edge.
  • Step 5: Measure and sew utensil slots.
  • Determine how much space you’ll need for your utensils. I had space for a fork, knife, spoon, and metal straw. I sewed a line up the pocket about every inch.
