Swift sew!

Peek at its story.
There's always the quick and happy making of Tyvek pouches- instructions are in my book.  I made several yesterday!
More Tyvek pouches for two special girls in my life. I love matching colors and prints to personalities.
Metallic paint was used for this one, and it has a slight bronzy shimmer that doesn't translate in this photo, but is subtly sophisticated. I love how I can match colors and prints with personalities/tastes of the recipients. Super personal. And yes, my triangles are ever so slightly slanted, but she'll still love me... maybe more!
Tyvek pouch to the gifty rescue. Instructions are in my book. Relief at my fingertips.  Quick and happy.
Sharpies also work wonderfully on Tyvek, so these pouches can become a great canvas for child-made illustrations. Still working on those!
Back to making I go...
Pin It


  1. I think my new fantasy is to be snowbound in a cozy cabin (fully stocked with chocolate and tea and homebaked goods) with you and a fat supply of pink speedy carve sheets, inks and some music to craft by. Oh, yes, twinkle lights because they cast such a flatter glow and lovely ambiance. Alas, I may get the snow bound, have supplies but no you :( Woman, you keep me busy! xo

  2. Misuse may be a violation of federal law.
    Turning the packaging inside out to conceal the Priority Mail / Express Mail insignia is specific misuse that is not allowed

    It may be illegal for you to use your envelopes. Did you check with the USPS? Not sure if it means crafting with them, though. Better be safe than sorry.


  3. My boys have been making mountains of pouches for family, friends, and teachers these past weeks. They love using my "special markers" and creating tons of designs. I love using up zippers from our creative re-use center!

    Thanks for the wonderful idea!

  4. Gifts are the best mediators that speak the exact thoughts of minds out in an impressive manner. With the arrival of Christmas time the rush of gifts delivery is back. Thus itis time for you to visit that comes with lots of options like flowers, hampers and lots more.
