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. http://originateandrenovate.blogspot.com/2011/09/traveling-art-kit.html
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.
