Valentine Envelope

Yesterday I made this Valentines Day envelope for Hailey. I turned out a lot larger than i thought it was going to, but still cute!


To make it you'll need:

Felt
Velcro
sewing machine

First i cut out 2 squares 18"x13" i also cut the edges to have a scalloped look, just for fun

Then i cut out a big triangle I placed it about a half inch down and sewed it across the top of one of the squares, this will be the back of your envelope.Once you sew it, trim the sides.

Next i made the straps that would go around the chair i cut four pieces 2"wide by 20" long (this length can vary depending on your chair) I sewed 2 each pieces together and sewed Velcro to the ends.

I then pinned the straps on to the square on the backside (this is the same square i sewed the triangle too)

and tried it around the chair,after i got them where i wanted i sewed them down.

I then sewed some Velcro onto the flap

Then i took the other square, which is the front and cut out letters for Hailey's name and sewed them on.

Next take the that piece and sew it on as the front

There you got it!

here's the back

I think she likes it! Now to make some Valentines!

Have Fun!
