Felted 'Mixed Wool' Envelope- Part 2 of 2

The finished project...drying.


                                                  Cutting a circle of leather...


                                          ...and punching stitching holes into it...


                   ...for use as a 'button reinforcement' on the inside of the envelope.


                                                The finished project (open)...


                                                            ...and closed.


                                                       The envelope back.


                                       Made as a retirement gift for a co-worker...

    ...it's just the right size to hold 'farewell cards' and other personal memorabilia.

Kat- I'm looking forward to seeing how yours comes out! It's a really fun project and can be embellished in lots of ways.

Lovely. And the reinforcement is a very good thought.

Beautiful and lovely envelope pouch with string tie.

Rachel--I would never want the button to 'pull through' the felt. :)
