|I folded the outer fabric, lining and interfacing and then laid them on top of|
each other. I then centered the envelope on top of all 6 layers.
|Cut 1" around each of the four sides, through all 6 layers (press hard!!)|
|Cut the handle at 4.5x13"|
|handle: press longwise in the center, and then press each side into the center.|
|Fold the handle along the middle and sew along all four edges, 1/8" seam|
|ruffle: take a 2x24 piece of solid fabric and zigzag stitch on all four edges|
|To create the ruffle, backstitch at a presser foot width along one edge. Using|
your thumbs, press the fabric under itself to make a ruffle. Continue for the
length of your outer fabric. When you get to the bottom, repeat on the other
edge. Cut off the excess solid fabric when you are done.
|Pretty ruffle and so easy!|
|The finished product...the cash envelopes fit perfectly inside.|
|Check out my "get out of the shot" face! Gotta love the self-timer when|
a toddler is around.
|The wristlet matches perfectly with the bag I made here.|
|My sweet little cash bag!|
