Cash Envelopes Finished!

I finished up my envelopes! (Last week was definitely a bit exhausting working on these and the Sew Along! Kind of glad the busy part is over.) :)

Want to see them?!?!

Here is my first one, using all Denyse Schmidt fabric. yum. :)

gotta love zippers!

the front

inside pockets - 3 card pockets and a DL pocket
these pictures are really horrible. sorry.

6 zippered pockets that fit money perfectly!
(if only they were FULL of money!)
They also have clear windows that you can place your labels in to help keep track of which pocket is for what.

back pocket for checkbook, shopping list, etc. 
They also have big pockets in between the pink fabric and the cover - might be nice for coupons. :)

Here is the second one.


you can see the category windows a lot better in these pictures

pockets are lined with heavy-weight interfacing to help them keep their structure.
They are WAY better than the envelope I made over a year ago!


I love them differently, but equally the same. I will be a bit sad to give the second one away, but hopefully someone will love it as much as I do. ;)

I made two of them as part of the cotton conversion tutorial of Walter & Veronica's oil cloth pattern. It's such a great pattern, and these really do turn out great! I'm excited to get some cash in them and start using them!

The Cash Envelope Sew Along is just finishing up if you want to check it out here
(The Link Up party and giveaway are open until March 10th! Don't miss it.)

I know I shared my envelopes in the other post, but I wanted to link this up to Canoe Ridge Creations Modern Monday, and Quiltstory's Tuesday thing (if I remember this week) so go check out what others have finished up! :)



  1. Those are so cute! I make bunches of zipper pouches but I love the idea of sewing them together like this.

  2. These are so great!! I really need to make one of these...
