Crocheted Valentine Envelope

This small envelope is a unique way to present a Valentine's Day gift, especially a gift of jewelry. A quick and easy project, even for a beginner. Gauge is not really important here. My envelope measures about 3 1/2 X 4 inches.

Approximate Time: a couple of hours

Supplies:

  • white sports yarn
  • crochet hook - size G
  • 1/2 inch heart shaped button
  • needle and red thread
  • small piece of felt to back up the button

Instructions:

Using sport yarn and G hook, ch 26.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across - 25 sts. Ch 1, turn.

Repeat Row 1 for 27 rows or until your piece is square. 25 sc in each row - do not count the ch 1 in the beginning of row. the 25th st will be into the top of the ch 1 in the previous row.

Last row: Repeat as with other rows, except ch 5 and turn at the beginning of this row. Omit the turning ch at the end of the row and fasten off. The ch 5 forms a loop buttonhole for your heart button.

Fold the corners in, as picture 2 shows (in PDF). Tack the corners where they meet together, and then with yarn whip the edges where they meet as shown in picture 3.

Cut a piece of felt or cotton cloth about 1/2 an inch to place behind the button for stability. Fold the envelope flap down to find the right position for the button and sew securely in place with the red thread. Tug the edges a little until it is square and flat.

By changing the type of yarn, the number of stitches in the starting chain and the size of the hook, you can make this up in various sizes.

I think this is the perfect size to tuck a pair of earrings into or perhaps an engagement ring.
