Even though it might not be a popular opinion in the world these days, I LOVE Matha Stewart. She's my favorite felon :-) I found a tutorial on her website for fabric envelopes for CDs, like a little pouch to put a CD in if you are giving it as a gift. Martha's tutorial is here: http://www.marthastewart.com/page.jhtml?type=content&id=channel1221&catid=cat268&navLevel=3

So I decided to try making one and here is what I came up with:

Rather than use 6" wide ribbon like Martha suggested (because really, who has 6" wide ribbon just laying around?), I just used some leftover fabrics and cut both pieces to 6.5" x 17.5" and sewed them together. I also sewed the ribbon to the pouch rather than just wrapping it and tying it.

Anyway, just thought I'd share!

It's very nice!
I have a love/hate thing with Martha. I love her style and projects but I hate her instructions and not being able to find materials and ingredients.  Angry
Your project came out great, I love your fabric choice too.

Very cute!  I love the fabric color and think your ribbon choice is perfect.. I can't imagine what 6 inch wide ribbon would look like on that  Undecided

"Boredom" is not in a crafter's vocabulary.

Teeheehee...this is indeed a very cute envelope Smiley 

It seems very multipurpose, and simple, easy to add your own flair to!

I'm not even really a Martha fan, but I can't believe she ended up in jail before those Enron jerks...tho' I'll save that feminist rant for another website...!

love the idea and Martha Stewart regardless of what she did or didn't do.  (i copied her sachet's for Christmas gifts one year.)     Grin

at least she can move on with her life now and continue to create "good things"

it funny you posted this! i was just thinking about those fabric envelopes from her website. one thing someone reminded me of is that when she shows you how easy something is on the show she doesn't mention how many went in the dumpster previously! i made some of her sashets out of linen coctail napkins and they came out pretty ok.

that is a great envelope, way better than the ones you get at newbury comics!
