Fabric Envelopes


Hi There!! I’m Tammy from Karamat back with another quick project. It seems lots of my friends are using a cash budgeting system or putting aside a few dollars here and there for a special trip. So I put together these fun little wallets to keep organized.

1 Fat Eighth bundle of Salt Air
Optional: Fusible Interfacing


For each wallet, select 2 pieces of fabric, cutting a 7.5″ x 7.5″ from each piece. For a little extra sturdiness, a piece of fusible interfacing can be fused to the wrong side of the fabric to be used for the exterior of the wallet.


With right sides together, and using a 1/4″ seam, stitch around the squares, leaving an opening for turning.


Turn right side out, and press.


Top stitch the top and bottom of the square with a 1/8″ seam, making sure to close the opening used for turning.


If you would like to add labels to your envelopes, now would be the time. Cut a small piece of neutral fabric (mine is about 1 1/2″ x 2″) and topstitch onto the envelope front. You’ll be able to add your category with a Micron or thin-tip Sharpie pen.


To finish up, fold your fabric in half, with the previous topstitching at the top, and sew together the side seams with a 1/4″ seam.



Each Fat Eighth piece will yield 1 envelope.
