Cut out a rectangular piece of fabric, 13 x 9 inches. Trim one of the 9-inch sides so that the top edge, which will become the flap of the envelope, is curved.

2

Press down a ¼-inch hem on the straight edge, using the opposite end of the fabric. Press that hem over again to hide the rough edge of the fabric. Sew along the hemline.

3

Fold the envelope so that 1/3 of the fabric is left as a single thickness to form the flap. Stitch ¼-inch from the right and left edges of the folded material to form a pocket. Trim the hemmed corners at a 45-degree angle to reduce bulk, then turn the envelope inside out so that the seams are on the inside.

4

Fold the flap sides over two times and press to make flap edges. Sew a seam along the edge. Press the top edge of the envelope down ¼ inch and again, just as you pressed the straight-edged hem. Hem the top edge of the flap.

5

Add the attachment of your choice, a button, brad or tassel, to finish.
