Today’s Christmas idea is Liberty Christmas Wrapping.
I love an eco-friendly idea – especially when it involves Japanese culture and fabric. Furoshiki is a type of Japanese wrapping cloth that was originally used to carry clothes, gifts and food. The word means Japanese bath spread and comes from the traditional practice of wrapping a bundle of clothes at the public baths.
This Liberty Christmas Wrapping looks so pretty. It’s a lovely addition to a present for someone who loves to sew. Even a snippet of Liberty attached to a present seems a lovely decadent treat.
This present has been wrapped in Capel with a beautiful folded bow. To create this effect, simply fold over the fabric strip in mini loops and secure with a staple in the middle.
It’s an environmentally friendly way of wrapping presents. The wrapping can be used again and again. Mix gorgeous Liberty fabrics with plains for a really pretty look.
Lace adds a beautiful touch too.
I hope that this has inspired you to fabric wrap your presents. Make sure you collect the fabric when the presents are open and re-use for next year.
