WOO HOO!!! Over HERE at Knicky Knacks we are being challenged to a Handmade Christmas!
I think it is a great idea and I usually do about half of my Christmas as handmade already so this year I am upping the anti!!
I have been doing this at the markets....
I have just introduced a Christmas range in the hope that people will be inspired and take the idea on board. Many market visitors come and watch me demonstrate how to wrap things in a piece of material and I even then put everything into a giant bag made from a Large Furoshiki, but although many people comment on what a great idea it is.....it seems it is too complicated???
I have to console myslef at the lack of sales with the fact that I am putting the message out there and hopefully some will go home and give the idea a go....at least it is one less plastic bag or less waste of trees if someone is inspired....
So this Christmas we will be using Christmas inspired material to wrap all the presents in and after it is over I can just fold up the wrappings and put them back in the cupboard till next year! How great is that!!!
You will need: any size SQUARE of material, a bandanna or a scarf is perfect but you may want to make your own if it is a big present. The size I am using here is about 700mm x 700mm. Perfect for two bottles or a couple of books, maybe a little big for one bottle but you can play with the tie or add embellishments for a more personal look.
Fold the ends together and tie in a decorative knot.
I have also joined in this SWAP this week, very Cute! I love making little softies....want to join in?
