Day 8 - Fabric


My family is full of sewers and crafters. I am embarrassed to tell you how many crafts I have started and done then still ended up with scads of leftover materials. This idea came from a dear friend however. She used cloth to wrap gifts. Sort of along the idea of flours sack being made out of calico. Using material as wrapping paper can create provocative talk. The material can even become an additional gift. Why not use a dish towel to wrap a kitchen gift or a wash cloth to wrap a bathroom gift or bar of luscious handmade organic soap? How about a fat quarter to wrap a gift for a quilter? At least it saves something from the landfill. To read how much ends up in the landfill read Holly Elmore's Give Responsibly, Give GREEN.
