This time of year it is sometime hard to post what I’m working on as I don’t want to spoil the surprise for the recipients. But really, it’s been too long since I posted anything, so I thought I’d mention how I am loving the Christmas gift bags I have been making. Though admittedly they take time to make I’ve realized that once they are made I feel “one step ahead”. It’s easy to tuck a present in once I’ve bought/finished it, or if I come up with another little thing to add I just pop it in and it’s all ready. I’ve got a little pile of bags for the family on a bookshelf which makes me smile. In fact, now I’m about to go sew some more . If you can’t, or don’t want to sew, you might consider looking at this tutorial by Selvedge on how to wrap with cloth, as another “green” alternative to paper wrapping.
