I made these fabric envelopes for my little daughter who loves celebrating Valentine’s day! She and I believe Valentine’s day is not meant for couples only, it’s supposed to be the day when love of all kinds is celebrated. And since our little family has lots of love to share, we kind of made it a tradition to share little things that are truly meaningful and say “I love you” like nothing else does.

Just like these cute fabric envelopes which will end up being filled with candy for Ellie and small paper crafts made by Ellie for me.

But I think these fabric envelope pouches look super cute as home decor too, particularly in a girls’ room! And I would totally use these to keep sewing notions and small craft supplies organized and easy to reach. These are just too cute to resist, I could fill my whole sewing/craft room with these tiny gems! The pom poms and the pink cording add even more cuteness and that’s why I opted for these instead of adding buttons or Velcro as I considered initially.
