How to Make a Christmas Check Special!
Follow Up – and it was a big success!
We are giving our son money for Christmas/graduation.
This morning I made a “holder” for the check.
First, I sewed a block of 9 batik squares,
then sewed another block of 9 batik squares,
then sewed the two blocks together.
Then I sewed 2 smaller blocks of 4 batik squares,
and sewed them together.
Next, I sewed the small block to the bigger block.
Finally, I made fasteners for each “layer” of the cloth envelope.
A sterling silver star pin with adjustable limbs pins the outer layer shut:
Here is a closeup of Mr. Star:
Now we start to open the outer flaps:
The inside block is black & white for contrast with the vibrant batik:
The inner envelope is held shut with a sterling necklace clasp:
Let’s open it up!
Finally, this is the back:
I am irrationally proud of this idea and of making it a reality!
If anyone wants to copy this, feel free!
