Evelope Template for all Your Sewing Patterns

What do you do with all those pdf patterns that you print off like Noodles and Milk Patterns and those hand drawn patterns? Well in trying to figure a way to store mine a came up with this..

A Pattern Envelope

Crazy I hadn't thought of this sooner as this is how you buy patterns from the store. Want to make one?

You will need:
  • Scrapbook Paper & Cardstock
  • Glue (I used a UHU gluestick)
  • scissors
  • Pictures of your finished pattern if desired

Cut out your template.

Trace the font piece on your cute scrapbook paper and the back on a plain color card stock, or whatever you would like. This is just what I did.

Cut out your papers fold your pieces on your top piece apply glue to all three folded pieces, just not the top flat. Place the card stock piece on top of the folded and glued pieces from the top.

Embellish the front as you would like a picture of the garment you have sewn or a picture of the original pattern so you can see what it is. Once your glue is dry add your pattern inside your envelope.

Make several I am making the girl ones in "girly" scrapbook paper and the boy pattern in boy printed scrapbook paper. Now you have a cute way to store your patterns.

That's a good idea! When you make them you get to spice them up so you did! That's what make it so fun!! :)

What a great idea!! I always just use envelopes from the office supply store, but your handmade ones are so much cuter!! Not to mention, a lot easier to tell apart!

I linked to your template on Craft Gossip Sewing:

Thank you so much for this creative and necessary idea! I can't get the template to open, it keeps saying there is no server to open the item. As the previous poster said, if it can't be corrected, could you email me the template???

Love it! For someone living in a paperless society, I seem to have A LOT of paper laying around!
