    Sustainable gift wrapping: Furoshiki & DIY fabric ribbon

    Christmas is coming to town and it’s time to think about cool ways to wrap your gifts this year.

This time I’m taking my efforts one step further and introduce you to two ways to make amazing gift wraps from fabric.

    I’ll show you how to wrap your presents with the Japanese furoshiki technique as well as how to make a beautiful gift ribbon from fabric. Both of these ideas are reusable (yay!) and will probably be even welcomed guests next holiday season – or on the next birthday table 😉

    You can use fabric leftovers for both ideas or old pieces of clothing you don’t want to wear anymore. Napkins and kitchen towels are great as well for the furoshiki technique! But be aware: Presentees might insist on keeping these beautiful gift wraps for themselves 😉

    DIY bralette: How I made a bustier from an old pair of jogging pants

    I’ve been looking for a nice bralette for quite some time now but my buying attempts always failed because of a rather poor fit. As I wasn’t keen to wait much longer, I decided to make my very own. A short look into my closet revealed an old pair of jogging pants and a top with adjustable straps that I found to be very helpful…  Continue reading…
