Lately I’ve been using all my fabric leftovers to make cloth wrap squares. It just occurred to me that this might be something worth sharing in a tutorial. It takes about 3 steps and 5 minutes. And zero sewing. Which is why it is totally my style. Plus it is so fun snipping up an old shirt or fabric scrap into beautiful wrap.
DIY Cloth Gift Wrap
Start with a square of fabric. My general rule for making cloth wrap is that the square of fabric should be four times as tall and wide as whatever it is you’re about to wrap. If you’re going to use two pieces of fabric as an inside and out, cut them together, just as you’ll wrap with them.
Side note. If you don’t have a rotary cutter and a cutting matt, you need to reconsider your values in life. I don’t even sew and I live by my rotary cutter and cutting mat. Go get a half off coupon and bring one home. It’s worth it. You will love it and it will love you.
Pick up your sponge roller and roll it either in fabric glue or this good stuff. It’s acrylic medium used for thinning acrylic paint. You can find it at any art store. Mine is leftover from high school art class. Good times.
Roll a thin even border around the edge to stop fraying. Allow it to dry, then snip off any loose threads.
That’s it. You are now ready to make pretty pretty packages and amaze all your friends.
