As is my my habit, I used various fabrics to wrap Christmas gifts this year. I dislike the waste of wrapping paper almost as much as I dislike saving old wrapping paper. The three gifts show here are wrapped in clothing repurposed as gift wrap. I like the dramatic colors and textures of the fabrics. The blue gift is a Japanese fireman’s jacket. The other two gifts are skirts. I added a sturdy belt to contrast with the orange skirt. On the long thin package, I put a ribbon and medallion saved from another year. I did not sew or cut the garments. I carefully tucked in the edges and simply pinned them on the packages with sewing pins.
Sorry I can’t reveal what the packages contain due to the risk that the recipient might read this blog.
