Need a last minute gift but has to be cute and unique and make them think you spent some time on it and didn't just throw it together at the "last minute"? Fancy Fabric Folders will do the trick. This project will allow you to be creative with your fabric choices and you can even personalize the gift with the quick zig zag machine appliqué embroidery lettering designs that are included in this tutorial. Don't have an embroidery machine? No problem. I didn't want you to feel left out so I included a PDF with each letter so you could print it out and use it as a template. You can add the zig zag around the edges with your sewing machine to achieve a similar look to the machine embroidery appliqué. Enjoy!
