Fabric Folders- Envelope style

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • how to sew straight stitches

Pattern Description:

This pattern includes a 4-page long PDF with instructions and template... AND an over 12-minute long step-by-step video workshop to walk you through making your first fabric folder with clarity and ease.

The pattern document you will download includes the direct link information for accessing the video workshop and the password key.
