Eco Wrapping Fun using vintage sewing patterns.

I thought I would quickly share this eco-friendly gift wrapping idea. 

Instead of using store bought gift wrap, I wrapped this party gift in vintage sewing pattern instructions and a salvaged piece of ribbon. Inside is a fashion themed gift so it is a perfect match. 

You can pick up old sewing patterns at thrift shops for a steal. I have a stack that I found in a box lying by the side of a road with other treasures.

Happy wrapping!


  1. used a vintage pattern to make an apron today.... love the idea of using them for wrapping...

  2. i love the way it looks but i can't bear to part with any patterns


Thanks so much for your comments!
