Fabric envelope bag

Fabric envelope bag

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.
