    I really enjoyed making this envelope clutch out of quilting cottons remnents. I used a beading toggle (circle with a straight stick closure designed for necklaces and bracelets) to close the wallet, as shown in one of the photos I posted with my profile.

    I was also INSPIRED by your envelope idea to make a cd holder for my sister. I was mailing her a home made cd, and made little square lined envelope holder with a gathered pocket inside – like Stacey’s – that is capable of holding a set of cd’s. I made sure it fit into the cardboard cd holder I had to send it in, as I worked. Instead of interfacing between the outside and lining I sewed in recycled cardboard that happened to be from a mailing envelope sitting in our recycling box. It was pretty cute and if I were her I would really enjoy receiving it. She is not into her mp3 player much, and carrys a lot of cd’s in the car. One difference between the pocket in my cd holder and the one in Stacey’s envelope is that I made a quite wide lined strip (actually I just seamed a piece twice as high and pressed it so the seam ran down the middle of the wrong side) then I finger pleated it all along the bottom and ran my narrow elastic through the top. I think when I try Stacey’s purse again I might see if a similar big pocket works. It might make it too thick, but I can always cut it down if that’s the case.
