sewing reversible envelope
size of both fabrics: 8" x 12"
sew on of the width edge of both fabric with right sides facing each other (e.g. sew from wrong side of fabrics)
2. draw 4" line from the sewn line (which is to form the pocket of envelope)
3. fold from the wrong side of the fabric (1st: backing fabric/floral), which you have the right side of backing fabric facing right side of your project fabric (checked fabric)
now you have folded bottom pocket of envelope and wrong side on top of the other (e.g. 4 layers of fabric, now you are still working from wrong sides of fabric), this folded end is free from sewing
4. (a) start of the beginning edge of the folded 4 layers place , sew until the end of the envelope, and turn fabric with needle in place of the fabric and sew another 3 inches and stop.
(b) repeat with another edge of the folded 4 layers and leave abt 2 - 3 " on top of the envelope to enable turning the envelope to its right side.
this is the view of the bottom pocket of the envelope.
from this opened end (2-3" opening) turn the envelope
yes, it is done and reversible too.
you may hand stitch the opening end to have neat finishing or sew a line near to the edge of fabric.
Hope I am clear with this narration.
