file

a fabric envelope for photos








This is the Photo File from Amy Butler's new book In Stitches. The directions are great. I tweaked them to skip the step for inserting cardboard. Instead I left a two inch opening when I stitched the file all around, turned it through that opening and blind stitched the gap closed after pressing. It took an hour to make. I used scrapbooking eyelets and no, that wasn't a good idea. They look cute from the outside, but they weren't made to go through two layers of fabric and a layer of Craft Fuse and will need to be replaced.

Another lovely thing, Cristina - your pictures make me want to have a go!
