I don’t know if an “envelope bag” is an actual thing, I just made that up because this bag is skinny like an envelope instead of gusseted. I suppose if it had a triangle-shaped closure it might be more like an envelope. But that is neither here nor there.
I didn’t use a pattern or tutorial for this one, it was just sewn up on the fly. It was a fairly successful project, all things considered, though my French seams are a bit funkified. I’m loving the the combination of sky blue toile with solid espresso-colored straps, though. I hope my sister-in-law loves it, too.
Happy Birthday, Karena!
