Pushing the envelope

My miniature mojo returned around 3am this morning, when I woke up with a start and knew exactly what I needed to do with all those security envelopes I've somehow started keeping over the past few weeks...

A few minutes with the 1" square punch, some graph paper and a glue stick. followed by some scanning, fabric printing and sewing and voila:
I call it my security blanket...

How cute! Talk about creative! I find 3am to be one of my most creative times of the day, too.

Love your 'security blanket' - what a wonderfully inventive idea.

That's brilliant! I have an ever-growing collection of security envelopes myself, so it's always nice to see what others do with them.

What a great idea! I too have been collecting envelopes for some project, but haven't yet decided what to do with them. Your patchworking is like a fantastic army blanket.

Love it! I have always found those envelope patterns compelling too.
