As the holidays draw near I am finally finishing up some loose ends. Baking, knitting, sewing, crafting, cleaning and of course, wrapping gifts. Most years I use old paper grocery bags to wrap gifts; I usually use rubber stamps to decorate it a bit. This however proved very difficult with two wee ones; we did buy some commercial wrap and we will recycle it but it still doesn’t seem to me the greenest choice.
To make myself feel a bit better I managed to sew four small drawstring bags to “wrap” some items which are headed for Wee One’s stocking. I plan to continue to reuse them year after year and maybe during the coming months I will get it together and make some more fabric bags to “wrap” bigger presents in too. That will happen right after I finish the fabric napkins and make cloth sandwich wrap bags, all of which I’ve had on my to-do list for at least a year, if not more. So maybe in 10 years?
Good intentions, at least!
