Make a Cute Envelope Purse

Plan to stay after our next Guild meeting, and learn how to make this envelope purse from Sandy Metzger.


Before the Workshop

Quilt and bind a square piece of fabric measuring 18″-26,” depending on how large you want your purse to be.


Bring your sewing machine, thread, scissors, & the following materials.


  • quilted and bound square measuring 18″-26″
  • 2 3/4″ wide x width of fabric strip for purse strap (or substitute 1 1/4 yard of cord or braid)
  • 2″ x 40″ strip of fusible fleece for strap (if you don’t have any, Sandy will have some on hand)
  • 2 buttons, 1 1/4″-1 1/2″ in diameter
  • 2 matching covered rubber bands (hair ties – Sandy will have extras)
  • matching thread, hand sewing needle
  • magnetic snap, velcro, or other closure (can be added later)
