Sew thankful:felt envelopes for little hands

Valentine’s Day has since passed, but the idea of little felt envelopes for my child stuck. As an adult,I don’t celebrate the day, but love the decor.

I hardly took pictures which is a big oops on my part but here is what one of the envelopes happened to look like mid embroidery. Using a regular envelope disassembled as my pattern, I cut two out of felt as well as regular fabric. Taking my sewing machine to make secure stitches I outlined the actual envelope and then just embroidered the edging where the heart pins were.

So now, my daughter hides little trinkets in her envelopes and presents them to us as surprises. Boy, do I love the toddler years right now.
