If you've ever tried wrapping a present in fabric, only to find it looks like an old tea-towel then try this method! By using interfacing it keeps the fabric crisp. The best thing is, after the gift has been opened, the fabric, ribbons and trimmings can be made into something else.
You Will Need:
Cotton Fabric – Slightly larger than your gift
Light Iron-On Interfacing
Pom pom trim
1.Cut the fabric to the size needed to wrap the present. It needs to be pretty exact as if you have too much excess fabric it will bulk up.
2.Apply Leightweight Iron-On Interfacing to the reverse of the fabric.
3.Fold one side of fabric over your gift. The opposite side will be seen and you can finish that edge with pinking sheers if you like. If not just cut it nice and straight.
4.Fold one end like an envelope and then pin in place whilst repeating at the other open end. When folding make sure your fabric is tight and sharp around the corners.
5.With both ends pinned you can then wrap around ribbon, ric rac or pom poms to hold it together.
Wrap it tightly to give a nice smooth finish to your gift wrapping.
6.Remove the pins.
7.Attach a reusable felt gift tag.
8.Don't forget to reclaim after opening and make something else!
