I just adore these!
But.. the BIG question was.. can I make them myself?.. A few things going for me..
1. I have felt in my stash. 2. I have LOTS of sewing stuff
Here is what I had against me (and it's really BIG)..
1. I suck at ALL things sewing.
But I was
trying umm.. being optimistic in my attempt.. do you think I succeeded?
Yup.. I think I nailed it! And I bet you'll NEVER guess what I made it out of..
So here's how I did it.. and trust me, someone who can sew could probably do a MUCH better job cause I really fudged my way through this one!
2 1/2 Placemats
Glue Gun (YES)
To start I cut one placemat in half
Then I pinned the half piece to the back of one placemat and folded in the edges so that it would make the flap for the envelope.
Next I sewed it so that the envelope and top would have it's shape.
Then I sewed the sides and bottom of second placement to the top of the placemat with the envelope top.
Next I sewed a felt heart with red thread and used fabric glue to add ric rac around the border.
Next I used my Cricut to cut out my daughter's name.
Then I glued her name on with craft glue.
Next I made two strips of felt with velcro that I hot glued onto the back so that I could attach it to the chair.
Here it is hung on the back of the chair.
And here is the flip side.
And here it is open and ready for little love notes from Mommy for Valentine's Day!
Viola! Super fudged chair back envelope made from placements!
Whoo hoo! I am soo loving it.. but if you'll excuse me now.. I have to make two more for the boys!
