Eco Wrapping Fun

It's spring and thus the birthday party season has officially begun in our house.

Instead of using store bought gift wrap, I wrapped today's party gift in vintage sewing pattern instructions and a salvaged piece of ribbon. Inside is a fashion themed gift so it is a perfect match.You can pick up old sewing patterns at thrift shops for a steal. I have a stack that I found in a box lying by the side of a road with other treasures.


  1. used a vintage pattern to make an apron today.... love the idea of using them for wrapping...

  2. i love the way it looks but i can't bear to part with any patterns


Thanks so much for your comments!
