Felt Valentine’s Day Mail

We don’t do too much around our house for Valentine’s day, but I do like to give our kids something fun to wake up to.  I made these little pouches to fill with some stickers and a little piece of candy and a tiny note.

Supplies Needed:

  • Felt (red and white)
  • Embroidery floss (I used DMC 321 and DMC white)
  • Button
  • Needle
  • Scissors
  • Marker or pen

Cut a rectangle 3.5″ x 6.5″ out of your red felt.  Find a circular object to trace around one end to get the rounded look.  I just used a glass out of my cabinet.  You could also just freehand it.  It would also be cute as a pointed edge since it’s an envelope.

From your white felt cut out a 1″ x 2″ piece and a half inch square.

Fold the bottom of your rectangle up about 2 inches and stitch the edges closed.  I used a blanket stitch, but a running stitch would also work.

To cut a slit for your buttonhole fold the rounded edge in half and cut a slit about half the size of your button.  Then when you open it up the button should fit through.

Fold your rounded corner down and make a pen mark through the slit so you know where to sew your button on.  Sew and button up to see how cute it is!

Stitch a heart on your tiny square, that’s your stamp, and stitch a name or a sentiment onto the label.  Use a running stitch to attach them to your envelope.

Fill with goodies for your friends and family!  It’s a great size for a gift card too.  What little treats do you enjoy on Valentine’s Day?
