Now why didn't I think of that?


Yesterday, I stopped by the local textile shop to find some homemade, locally made, amazingly made, not by me made cuz I am lazy and tired and out of time made, Mother's Day gifts.

After purchasing these little trinkets, I decided I was more impressed with the wrapping then the gift. Wow - recycled tissue - the tissue from old sewing patterns.

I love finding new ways to go green and reuse our scraps around the home.

Make your Mother's Day a bit greener this year - and wrap her gift in a sewing pattern tissue.

It made me smile anyway. But I am easy that way.

What a cute idea! I love ways to re-purpose things & make them new again! Love it! Now just where to find old sewing patterns??? Actually I bet there are bunches in my grandmother's attic!
