3. Eco-Friendly, Fashion-Forward Gift Wrap

Wrapping gifts in fabric is no new fad. The Japanese have been doing it for ages and call it furoshiki–the art of wrapping gifts in cloth. Secure ends by tying a knot or using a safety pin. You’ll be able to reuse these for years to come!

4. Advent Calendar

December just started, so you still have plenty of time to make an advent calendar to count down the days until the 25th! Using pretty fabric (perfect use for extra scraps of patterns), cut out the shape of a house and sew the roof and body of the house together/connect it with iron-on trim. Sew on buttons and fasten 24 tiny gifts wrapped in fabric to the calendar with twine. The best part is that the calendar can do double duty–use it for post cards and small notes throughout the rest of the year.

5. Decorative Candy Cane Centerpiece

Mold tin foil into the shape of a candy cane and wrap it in a red & white fabric–we like a check or stripe–for a rustic look. Secure the ends with a dot of fabric glue and place them in a decorative jar.
