Earlier this year we started using cash for all of our purchases, with the exception of our bills, which we pay online. We have loved the cash system for a number of reasons, one being the freedom we have experienced by not having to worry about going over budget!
And after a couple of months, our paper envelopes were looking loved. So I resorted to making my own fabric cash envelopes! I used two fabric patterns for each envelope – one on the inside and one on the outside. I sewed the envelopes together and used velcro for the envelope closures.
And I’ve been using this clutch pouch to stuff my wallet and cash envelopes in when we are out and about. It makes it convenient for changing purses too because I can just move the pouch from bag to bag, rather than all of the contents.
I am loving these cash envelopes! It makes the cash system even more fun! I still have a few more to make in the weeks to come.
