Gift wrapping - fabric covered paper
This little tute came to mind after my last post regarding gift wrapping. Last spring I played with paper and fabric (helping Jacob with a craft project) and got the idea of sewing a fabric piece over a sheet of paper to make wrapping for my crochet flowers. I tried it and it looked great, and I didn't miss to take pictures.
Here's what is needed:
You need a fabric piece (scrap), a piece of paper and a sewing machine.
For the wrapping I used an A4 copy paper and a lovely and quite thin cotton piece. I sewed the fabric onto the paper ( seam allowance included).
Inside I placed the crocheted flowers...
and wrapped them nicely. I fastened the wrapping with a silk ribbon in the end.
If you have any ideas about fabric covered paper, please share them with me!
