The example photos of beautifully wrapped gifts presented to us at The Ardent Sparrow were admittedly a bit intimidating. I went for "original" and "what was on hand" in my creative process. I raided my sewing stash for some inspiration and the theme emerged - behold! Upcycling! A scrap of pretty fabric that could be used again!
|Fabric feels so good and makes me happy...|
|Pinking shears to prevent fraying; a loose running stitch to hold in place.|
|Folded and hand stitched ends. Use pins to keep fabric from slipping, remove after a few stitches.|
I found a few buttons from my vintage button collection to embellish with.
I shipped it off today and forgot to include the card about myself (of course!) but will send that off separately tomorrow.
This was so fun to do. I can't WAIT to share what's inside the box! But you'll have to wait until she opens it...
