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.
- Felt (red and white)
- Embroidery floss (I used DMC 321 and DMC white)
- 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?
