Hi sewers, this is a fun swap, here is what you do:
1) Open up a paper envelope along the glue lines, without cutting or tearing, or use a template like the one here:
for your pattern. Sorry about the broken link, you may have to paste it in your browser. This will be your pattern.
2)You will need to cut two pieces of fabric that are larger than your template, plus one piece of double-sided fusible interfacing, also larger than your pattern. Make a sandwich of your fabric, interfacing, and second piece of fabric, with right side out, and interfacing in center, and fuse according to instructions.
3) Let the fabric sandwich cool, and the mark out your pattern, and cut it out of the fabric sandwich. Mark your fold lines in water soluble ink if you like. Then, fold up your envelope and use permanent fabric glue to secure flaps of envelope to make the pouch, leaving top flap free. Fold the top flap down, and press shut so that you have a heavy fold line where the flap closes. If you are a good buttonhole maker, make a button hole in the top flap, and sew on a button for closure, or use a snap, velcro, or any other type closure you desire to hold the flap closed.
4) Go crazy and embellish!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This envelope will now be a great place to hold special things.
