Re: making things out of fabric that aren't normally made out of fabric


My inspiration for this little project was a simple fabric envelope that was made by Nireko Ohira (from Lecien), out of fabric designed by Monica of Happy Zombie. Monica enthralled us awhile ago at a PMQG meeting and included Nireko's envelope in her parade of beautiful fabrics and quilts. It made quite an impression on me.

I used interfacing for a papery stiffness and buttons to make it look like an interoffice envelope. I love those things. Winding the little string around just gets me.


I took some pictures of the process but they are haphazard at best, so I'll make another one to show you the details soon(ish).
