Big Bubble Mailer ----> Little Bubble Mailers!

I have a stack of HUGE bubble mailers.  They have been sitting in a corner, collecting dust, because when I ship something from my Etsy shop, I don't need a gigantic mailer.  But I realized, why can't I turn one huge bubble mailer into four smaller mailers???  It's simple and quick to do, and I love the way they look when they're done. 

Oh, before I begin... I would like to apologize for my photo qualities.  I'm using my phone for images now, because my poor camera had a run-in with the toilet... and died.  So, it's phone-quality images for a while!  Now that that's taken care of, on to the tutorial!

You will need:
  • A big bubble mailer
  • Scissors
  • A sewing machine & thread 
It's really very simple to do.  Take your big ol' mailer and cut it into sizes that are useful to you.  I cut mine into quarters because they are the PERFECT size for my shop's items.  You can measure here, but I just eyeballed it.

Take each quarter and trim the edges.  The top two quarters already have the flap closures, but the bottom two don't.  Easy fix- just cut off 1.5"-2" from the top of one piece (see picture below).

Take the two pieces to the sewing machine, and sew a straight line all the way around the three closed edges, about 1/4" from the edge.  I had my machine set at about a 2 for the stitch length.  Don't forget to sew backstitch at the beginning and end of your sewing, to make sure the threads don't come undone.

Trim the edges down a little, and then throw the mailer back under the machine and do a zig-zag stitch around the edges.  It's added protection, and I love the look!

Love the edges!  I would love to make a few with some neon thread!

There- ready for shipping.  Just secure the flap with some packing tape, and you're good to go!
