Wrapping gifts in something other than standard tissue and fancy paper has always been a "thing" for me. I've used colored comic strips from the newspaper, brown butcher paper decorated with stamps and stickers, and even fabric yardage in place of gift wrap. How about you? It would be fun to hear similar tales for recycling and using ordinary wrappers as coverings for gifts hidden inside.
In the last few years, I've challenged myself to make some bags that are worthy of being kep and reused, or at least put on display for a period of time. Today I want to share a few more from past archives, in the hope of inspring you to make some of your own.
Below you'll find some photos and links to full instructions. Most of these are from the archives of Brother Sews projects. When you see specialty feet mentioned, check your machine options to see if you have similar accessories to tackle specialty sewing tasks.
I hope these bags brighten up your holidays! Let me know if you plan to create your own pretty package wraps for gift giving season.
