Two toned felt envelope bags

These are made almost in the same way as the Felt Envelope Clutches and the Embellished Felt Clutch

There are only two differences: 

First, instead of folding one single piece of felt to make the envelope, I joined two pieces together (the back piece is the largest and folds over to the front, which means I had to sew the sides and the bottom, instead of just the sides).

The color contrast looks good, but mostly I was trying to get rid of bits and pieces of felt (as part of my destashing efforts).

And second, instead of using a ribbon or velcro to close the bags, I just added a matching button to each and cut a button hole directly in the felt

And here they are: three different sized little cute felt envelopes.

I'm still not sure how I will use them, but I'm pretty sure it won't be that difficult, especially since I have lots of family and friend's birthdays coming up.
