Happy Labor Day! Let's kick off this week right, today I'm sharing a fun accessories project on the Art Gallery Fabrics Blog! That's right, it's Fat Quarter Gang time again!

I'm showing you a twist on my fabric envelope tutorial, this time in two great sizes and a patchwork version! One is perfect for coupons and receipts and the other is good for business cards and loyalty cards! I'm sharing two closure options as well! Find the full project tutorial here.

I choose a bright, fresh mix of prints from a variety of Art Gallery collections! Would you like to win fat quarters of these prints?
