here is a wonderful and quick gift that will please anyone who loves to sew.
A sweet sewing accessory envelope.
You can find patterns for these or you can just create your own..........
You start off by choosing two pieces of fabric about the size of 16 x 10 inches long.
One is for the inside and one is for the outside.
You take small pieces of felt and create different pieces to hold different sewing items.
Decide what items you want to have........scissors..........needles........and such. Measure the items and make a pocket or piece to hold each item onto the inside fabric used.
Embroider the tops and blanket stitch before you stitch them into your inside fabric piece.
The small envelope is simply a rectangle size piece for the bottom and a flap for the top.
Using an applique or blind stitch, sew the bottom part onto the inside fabric and then stitch the flap above that.
It is wonderful for sewing glasses, tape measure or embroidery floss.
and the inside page to hold the needles.
Attach a loop on the bottom, and a small button on the top to hold the button case closed.
Stitch the bottom half of the outside cover onto the inside fabric of your envelope.
Make a small scissor holder and a strip of felt for a marking pencil.
Use the blind stitch or applique the pieces onto your inside fabric.
Stitch another strip onto the inside fabric, leaving one end open to stuff a small amount of filling into the strip and stitch it closed. Perfect for a pin keep.
You don't have to make a heart shape, you can just make this thimble and stitch stripper a square pocket if you like. The heart is just really sweet looking.
Applique the felt pieces onto the blue inside fabric.
After all of your pieces are sewn onto the inside fabric, place the two fabric pieces together with wrong sides facing and stitch together.........leaving an opening to turn inside out after stitching.
After fabric pieces have been sewn together, embroider a decorative buttonhole stitch around entire piece.
This sewing accessory envelope was meant to be tri -folded.
You can sew ties on the outer edge if you wish.
Now you have a pretty and usable gift for the seamstress in your life!
This can be created in one weekend!
