This week I need to mail off several charm packs.  I started to put them in puffy envelopes and they looked lost.  I so needed to remedy that so I whipped up some cozy envelopes for them.

Don't they look better? More secure? Happy?

I made several of these last fall using this tutorial.

They take 2 pieces of 10x20 fabric and some interfacing. They don't take much time to sew up either. The ones I made in September had velcro closings.  The tutorial calls for buttonholes.  I haven't done one of those in several years so I opted to do nothing on this group.

This is the size in the tutorial.  I made several on a smaller scale. They held greeting cards that I made as gifts and gift cards.  A wonderful stash buster.

Refering back to my posting regarding what I did in the month of May I noticed that I completely skipped over the Swoon blocks that I am making for the quilt for ME for the new house.  How I forgot about 7 of those huge blocks I have no idea. They are covering half the free surfaces in the room.  Hopefully by late tomorrow I will have the first one for June done.
