New Envelopes!

This is one of my favourite things to make.

My envelopes are all made from Trader Joe's and Whole Foods paper bags - an AWESOME way to upcycle, right?!

I layer papers and fabrics onto them and then sew the pieces to the envelopes.

Each one is unique - that is probably why I enjoy making them so much! Each one is a new adventure!

Here is the process - my sewing machine table colvered in paper and scraps of fabrics!

A few of my favourite designs...

I love the texture that the stitching adds!

Near the top of this photo you can see where I did some free-motion sewing.

More free-motion sewing...

Fun, right?

You can buy a four-pack here and save!
