Sustainable wins: Fabric Wrapping

Sustainable living wins: what do you do at birthdays and celebrations things do you do to make it sustainable? Every family birthday these wraps come out. Its reduced dramatically the amount of packaging waste left over after a birthday.

I love fabric wrapping. It’s another birthday in the house and I have got our reusable furoshiki fabric wraps out. I made these from scraps of materials I have left over from other projects, cut into squares and added zig zag stitch around the edges to stop fraying. Another great alternative is get square scarfs. I have picked up quite a few at markets and charity shops.

It’s like getting out old friends now and kids love choosing which wrap to use. If you follow the link below, there are some great simple ways to use these to wrap.
