Never to young for handcrafted gifts
This project idea started out as a present for my nephew's first christmas.

The envelope is hand stitched from white felt and especially personalised. I used a scrap of snowman fabric to create a stamp and pretty heart button to secure the contents safely.

11cm tall x 13cm wide

  • Step 1

    Using the Template cut out the envelope shape from white felt.

    Using the template as a guide cut the slot for a button hole adjusting as required depending on the size and shape of your button.

  • Step 2

    Fold felt envelope into shape and pin in place. This will help you see where everything needs to be placed.

  • Step 3

    With the envelope flap pinned down, mark where the button needs to be placed using your button hole as a guide. Unpin flap section and sew on your button.

  • Step 4

    Cut a small scrap of fabric for the 'stamp' approx 2.5cm x 2.5cm depending on the design of your fabric. Using a single strand of red embroidery thread sew the 'stamp' to the front of the envelope, positioning it in the top right hand corner.

  • Step 5

    Using a pencil or disappearing ink fabric pen write your greeting or message on the front of your envelope. I used 'Dear Santa' 'Love Harry' as this is a present for my nephew. I kept the font child like and fun.

  • Step 6

    Unpin the envelope and using 2 strands of red embroidery thread hand sew over your message.

  • Step 7

    Repin your envelope together and using 2 strands of red embroidery thread blanket stitch the two sides together and also around the button hole.
