We interrupt this broadcast to interject a brief picto-homily on the virtues of not letting fabric go to waste. Especially licensed collegiate gator fabric, which rarely goes on sale (but you can certainly use your % off coupons to buy it most times).
This gift wrap was salvaged from my yo-yo baby quilt that went wrong (previous post). I didn’t finish the edges, although I could have (if I wanted to broadcast to the world that I was one of those fussy and uptight gifters that has to do everything the “proper” way). I may be fabric-retentive, but I ain’t anal-retentive!
Also, on the subject of cha-yeap, sometimes when I use a lot of piping or seam binding, it bugs me to see those nice cards that the bindings are wound around for packaging, in the trash can. They’d be the perfect size for…something. How ’bout…..
Well, there we go!
I cut out a little fabric motif and
glued it onto the card, added the
name, used the hole puncher for
threading the ribbon around the tag.
So what do you think, is my
cheapness my weakness?
OK, you can go back to Farmville,
Fishville, Youtube browsing, or whatever you were doing…thanks for the
peek! This is my postaweek2011 remnant project of the week.
