    Day 16: Envelope & a Special Gift Inside

    Materials Needed:
    (another copy paste directly from the site as the materials have important notes attached to them)

  • Envelope fabric: 1 piece each of exterior + lining fabrics measuring 10” x 10”

    *If using a fabric with a directional print, be sure to cut the square so that the motif runs from corner to corner (see left image).*

  • Card fabric: 1 piece each of front + back fabrics measuring 5.25” x 7.5”, you can cut the back fabric to size now, but do not cut the front fabric until you have “written” your note.

  • Water-soluble pen, embroidery floss + embroidery needle
