This Week's Project: Fabric Envies

I have a couple of envelopes to show off this week! I was really pleased with them, and they were easy to do, so there will be a tutorial, but it will show up on ThinkCrafts first; I'll post it here later.

Here they are:



 


I showed them to my DH, and told my Mom about them over the phone. Both of them said exactly the same thing: "Well, can you mail something like that?!"
"I'm pretty sure they'll be okay," I said. "Heck, you can wrap up a crowbar and put an address on it, and the post office will send it!"

Sure enough, when I laid them on the counter at the post office and asked if I could mail them, the guy didn't bat an eyelash, just said, "Sure. We get all kinds of stuff through here." He did say they were so pretty, didn't I want to put them in something so there wouldn't be any risk of their being damaged? but I told him no, as the object of them was to have something really pretty arrive in the mailbox of the recipient.

Have you heard about the 52 Weeks challenge over at Fabric Fascination? The idea is to finish a project a week for 2011, and post it. I'm a bit late arriving to the party, but it sounds like fun to me, so now I'm going to post this, and drop the link over there!

Oh. Forgot to mention: These are my creations for the Mail Art #2 Swap on Swap-bot.com!

Wow! I'd love to receive something like that in the mail! Nice that your PO guy was so sweet. Mine would probably say a big NO! There's this one snarky guy.....

Anyway the envelopes are very cool!

(Maybe someone will show me how to make a button the usual way someday.)

Your mailable fabric envelopes are wonderful. What a treat it will be for someone to get in their mailbox.
