Over at Sew Mama Sew blog they had a fabric Valentine contest. They provided a tutorial for the envelope and card, and you supplied the design. So I decided I'd give it a try. I didn't win anything, but it was fun anyway. This is what I came up with-
A faux suede envelope with a crochet edge and held together with a heart button.
And then for the card-
I love owls, and I knew I had to apply one to my card. It is times like these that I wish I had an embroidery sewing machine, but since I don't I stitched the writing with my machine using a narrow zigzag, and a close button hole width stitch.
