Are you ready to start writing some gushy love letters?!
I am, and I am making everyone in my family participate. Now we have cute felt envelopes to wrap up our valentines to each other. I was inspired by this tutorial here at Roots & Wings. If you are limited in your sewing abilities and don't have the patience to sew for very long, then this project is for you! I like to sew as long as I can see the end in sight. And especially when I can make something as cute as this:
I found some cheap felt at JoAnn's (29 cents a sheet!), and made 1 pink envelope (for me, of course), and 1 red and 1 white for my boys. I added velcro to the hearts on the fronts to keep the envelopes closed. We don't want those sweet nothings sliding out!
I love how the stitching on the back looks like a postmark! You could add lots of embellishments to really cutsify these. But I don't know how impressed my husband and son would be. So I simplified.
Don't you love how the pinking around the edges adds so much?! And the stitching really makes these look authentic. Now these little guys are just waiting to be filled with some sweet Valentine's Day letters.
Now I am dying to make some mailboxes so we can really deliver our mail in style. By the way, only 17 more days until Valentine's Day!
