From there, she shares the myriad ways in which a few basic techniques can transform a simple square of cloth into an elegant wrapper. Use your folded fabrics to: Gift-wrap anything from books to flowers Bundle up a picnic Tote items ranging from wine bottles to yoga mats Use as a handbag or backpack Make into a pillow covering Create decorative coverings for vases, tissue boxes, and moreA quiet reminder that opportunities for artistry are everywhere around you, Wrapping With Fabric is the craft book that makes it easy to bring a touch of grace and ingenuity to everyday life-and help preserve the environment, too.
