Hello, October!

I’d like  to share my fabric envelope idea today. My kids often bring yellow paper bags for parents’ signature and return back to the teacher.

I kept thinking about prettier bag that my girls could use for all year long and this is how I came up with a fabric envelope  bag.




First, I sketched a rough  design  how to decorate on a plain  fabric.



Then I drew with Sharpie marker on white linen. (you can use erasable pen for the safety.)

I always love to mix a bit of colorful fabrics and a bit of the plain. That way I can have my own space to imagine. I hope you understand what I mean.




Before you start sewing, iron fusible interfacing on the wrong side of the fabric.




My sewing illustration came out better than my draft sketch on the paper. 🙂




This is the look of back side. Yes, I use lots and lots of threads. 🙂







I just love my fabric envelope. It sure is prettier than boring yellow paper bag. Don’t you think so? 🙂


Today is the new beginning. I will try to deliver more inspiring projects to you this month. I hope you have a good start of the whole new month today.
