oh my goodness! look at what i found!
i was researching other christmas crafts when i saw these lovely, adorable felt envelopes to santa claus! of course i pinned the ideas and decided to make a round-up post for inspiration.
first i’ll share what i made.
i used felt, thread, hot glue gun and my sewing machine just a little.
i used a blanket stitch to sew the edges of the envelope together. i wasn’t too concerned about the evenness of the stitches, creating a childlike quality to the project. then i used my scrap felt to cut out the letters, stamp and holly embellishments.
i have lots of scraps of felt that i save for detailing for all sorts of projects. here i used the small pieces for holly, the reindeer’s face and antlers and the stamps. i just hot glue gunned them on.
then i embroidered some simple wintery stars on the back of one of the envelopes.
i just love them!
below i have included ideas that vary from quite intricate to very simple. school aged kids could even make one of the easier versions of the envelopes.
