Red and green drawstring bags between Christmas decorations

"Green" gift wrapping

We are all aware of our environmental footprint and trying to live more sustainable.

Let's start by ditching the gift wrap this Christmas, and use more sustainable ways to "wrap" our gifts.

One idea is to make easy drawstring bags which can be used afterwards as lunch bags or clothing bags. Personalise them with embroidery or heat transfer vinyl to make them extra special.

Or simply wrap a gift in a gift, for example use embroidered towels or dishcloths as wrapping instead of paper. Or simply wrap your gift in a beautiful piece of fabric, the perfect gift for any sewer :)
