Welcome to your Element3 Health Sewing Club! This week we will be making a fabric envelope which features a fully lined interior, flap closure and rear slip pocket.
On Wednesday you have the opportunity to vote as to how we can improve upon this design and on Thursday I will show you how to add one or more of the most popular variations to the pattern in our live Sew Together session. Last but not least, remember to join us Friday for our weekly "Sew and Tell" and your chance to show off your new and improved fabric envelopes! You can register for the Sewing Club live events here.
To craft this project, as shown, you will need approximately a half yard of cotton fabric + your choice of iron on interfacing for the exterior body, flap and strap closure.
