Here is another reusable gift wrapping idea, actually wrapping, not bagging. It is simple and easy to do.
Starting with a square piece of fabric, either use an overedge zigzag stitch or surger to finish the raw edges. Then lay the fabric wrong side up on a table.
Place your item in the center, diagonally in relation to sides.
Bring fabric corners of two opposite sides to center, letting them overlap. Here, I picked the corners on the two long sides of the folded sweater so that the other corners would be long enough to tie together.
The folds on both sides are neatly tucked in, the same way you would when wrapping with paper.
Next, bring the remaining two corners to the center and tie. Unless you are using a slippery fabric, a half knot should be sufficient to hold it together until the bundle is tied with a ribbon.
For the finishing touch, a strip of contrasting fabric in the same pattern is used for a ribbon. The ribbon is a strip of fabric folded in half lengthwise and zigzag edge stitched on the raw edge side and ends.
I hope you will try this quick and easy reusable gift wrapping idea. This was quick, but I am thinking that some pieced fabric would make interesting wrapping, if not as quick. Come back to the blog in a day or two to see what variations are posted.
