Iron and Hem

  1. Iron fusible interfacing to the wrong side of the envelope.

  2. Fold 1/4 inch hem around all edges and iron.

  3. Add Velcro or snaps to the point of the envelope flap. Tip: Sewing or tacking Velcro or snaps on with thread will create a better hold than using self adhesive.

  4. Top stitch the bottom hem at 1/8 inch.

Create the Envelope

  2. Optional: pin the ends of a ribbon between the envelope layers at the top edge of the envelope where the flap starts.

  3. Top stitch 1/8 inch around the entire edge of the envelope. Tip: it is easiest to start in the middle of the bottom of the envelope.
