I made this mail sorter last month for letters and things, to have close to our front door. Sort of an in-and-out box for mail.
It’s pretty simple. A few pockets for letters and things.
I bought the material in Slovakia earlier in the year and had the buttons (again from Slovakia) for years and years. They are solid brass. The brown ribbon is really a shoe lace that I took off from a gift bag and saved.
I stuck a piece of heavy-duty cardboard in between the material before I sewed up the bottom. I wanted it to stay flat. It’s still a bit flimsy, but so far it fulfills its purpose.
