- First, determine how long you want your scraps to be (or how much of the handle you want to cover). Mine are about four inches long. Trim your scraps to fit your utensil handles. Make sure you have nice even edges with no stray strings.
- Apply a coat of Mod-Podge to the utensil. Since mine are flat, I just did one side first.
- Use your finger to smooth one edge of your fabric on top of your Mod-Podge. Then carefully wrap your fabric tightly around the handle to the other side.
- Place a nice thick coat of Mod-Podge on top of your fabric where the ends will overlap. Again, use your fingers to pull your fabric tight, then smooth down onto the glue.
- Once your fabric is the way you want it, cover the whole fabric piece with a thick coat of Mod-Podge, paying careful attention to the top and bottom. This will help seal it against water when washing. (It goes without saying that these are hand-wash only, right? )
- Let your utensils dry completely. The fabric handles should be stiff to the touch.
Just for fun, I used my precision engraver to engrave some words onto some of the spatulas. I think it's kind of cute.
