Brown paper packages tied up with string...


I'm constantly trying to think of pretty ways to package gifts and my etsy items.  Lately, I've been playing with paper and my sewing machine.  It's creative, easy, and definitely economical.






And fingers crossed, I may be packaging a whole lot more if I get the chance to sell some of my things in a local shop.  Yay!

  17. Thanks so much for the info Cheryl.. I just have to tell you how much I love your blog! Your tutorials are great and a newbie sew-er like me can even do it! I made one of your embroidery hoop initials for my new nephew and it turned out so cute (blogged about it here: http://sandysewz.blogspot.com/2010/08/more-sewing-projects.html) Next up I'd like to try the Rainbow Bunting Baby Quilt. Thanks again for the great tutorials and inspiration :)
