Sew a pretty envelope out of felt to make a special valentines gift for a loved one. This is also a lovely craft for DIY birthday gifts! 

You will need: Felt - red, pink, white Embroidery thread - white Needle Scissors Button - pink Glue/glue gun (optional)

You will need:

Felt - red, pink, white
Embroidery thread - white
Needle
Scissors
Button - pink
Glue/glue gun (optional)

Step 1 Cut out the shapes shown in the photo above. They can be any size you like - I cut the red piece to about 16cm wide and that made an envelope that was approximately 10cm wide. So if you want it to be a bit bigger then cut these shapes slightly bigger! Make sure the pink felt shape is the same size as the upper triangle and middle section of the red piece of felt.

Step 2 Make a pretty stamp out of the felt and glue onto the red envelope shape. You can stitch it on if you want to, mine was so tiny I thought it would be to fiddly! Then using the white embroidery thread, stitch a zig zag pattern to mimic where the address would be on the envelope. If you're really good with a needle then you could try stitching actual words on to it!

Step 3 Turn the piece of red felt over so that the stamp is facing the table. Then place the pink piece of felt over the top of the red piece and stitch together using a blanket stitch. Only stitch the upper part of the felt as you don't want the stitch showing through on the front of the envelope.

Step 4 Fold the left hand side triangle in towards the middle of the envelope, and fold up the bottom triangle over the top and pin them together. Stitch these two together making sure you don't accidentally sew through the pink felt or the front of the envelope! Repeat this with the other side.

Repeat this with the other side.

Step 5 Sew the button onto the back of the envelope. Then fold down the top and mark where the button is on the felt. Use this as a guide to decide where the cut the slit. Carefully cut a slit about the size of the button in the top part of the envelope. Then sew all around this, as shown above, to prevent the felt from breaking or the button hole getting any larger. You can now close your envelope! Now you can give it to a loved one for valentines or their birthday. Depending on the thickness of your felt it might help to iron the edges to make it flatter!
