In the Joann Fabrics remnant bin I picked up a piece of sparkly felt. It was just a long, narrow leftover but it was screaming Valentine’s Day. (Probably, it was originally screaming Christmas but we’ve moved on!) Anyway, a piece of it I wanted for a purse (coming soon) but I had another idea for the rest. My big idea mostly involved trying out a lot of the cool stitches on my new sewing machine!
So, I decided to create a little Valentine envelope or little clutch for my daughter. She loves it and it’s so easy, I wanted to share.
It’s just a little envelope — three pieces really. Two straps and a “fold-over” envelope body (I added a couple of hearts just for fun.) The envelope body is a long rectangle. The size really depends on what size envelope you want to end up with and how much felt you have.
Then, I tried out some new stitches!
Then, I prepared the straps…
Simple, cute, and fun to make. The bonus is my daughter loves it! This one’s not for sale…so try it especially if you’ve got some fun stitches to try!
