I really hope you liked my Styling the Seasons post this month. The styling is based around the theme of love and the letters I will be writing to my loved ones for Valentine’s Day. I usually send shop bought cards but this year I decided to go one better and make pretty floral and gingham fabric envelopes with fabric I was sent by Laura Ashley.
If you would like to make these sweet gifts yourself, they are a really quick and easy sewing project and you can’t go far wrong.
What you will need:
Two pieces of fabric exactly the same shape and size as the envelope template (if you are using light weight fabric you will also need interfacing, but I used medium weight cotton). I used Laura Ashley’s Clarissa print, pink gingham, scarlet gingham, and Geranium print.
Needle and thread (or fabric glue)
Iron and sewing machine
Have you got any lovely makes planned for this month? I have seen some amazing Valentine’s wreaths that are simply beautiful. Pop back next week for a super quick homemade chocolates recipe that I will be making for Jules (poor boy never gets to eat sugar as I don’t let in the house so I like to treat him occasionally!).
