No holiday can be imagined withoutgifts. And by tradition all the gifts are wrapped in a beautiful package. In this article we will talk about the manufacture of a beautiful and original packaging in the form of a textile envelope with our own hands. Although it is commonly believed that an envelope is just an ordinary package for putting all kinds of items and papers. And we understand by this word only packaging for letters. But it is not so difficult to give such packaging its originality. And if the textile envelope of a dense fabric is still decorated, then the person for whom you are preparing a surprise will appreciate your gift. This beautiful packaging has a number of advantages:
- the possibility of using it more than once, in contrast to paper packaging;
- making such a thing, you can use all sorts of scraps, unnecessary pieces of fabrics that you could just send to the garbage can.
Textile envelopes for gifts lookvery beautiful and original. In particular, if you decide to decorate them with different beads, ribbons, a thread of contrasting color. This lesson will show how to apply an overlock in the work or, if not, a zigzag mark on the sewing machine. In order to produce such an envelope, weuseful cloth, thread of contrasting color and overlock (sewing machine). To begin with, we need to cut the fabric chosen by you. Envelopes of this kind are always made of four separate parts. This example is designed for such dimensions: the back and front panels are 35 by 25 cm, the side inserts are 35 by 10. But you can make an envelope with the sizes that will suit you. Now thread the sewing machine or overlock with the thread you will work with. Also you can use metallized threads. Connect your workpieces in such a way that the edges come to the outside. First of all, sew all the details (side with the front and back cloth) on the sides. Then bend the side pieces inside the envelope. Bends must pass through the center of the parts. Fix all the details with pins and overturn the bottom of the product, grabbing all parts of the envelope. You can try to sew similar envelopes fromfabrics of completely different textures and colors. They can be combined with each other. And in the end, put a gift inside the envelope and fix the whole thing with ribbons or decorative threads.
