Decorate your house this Christmas with these great sustainable projects.
Printed Christmas Trees
Print the Christmas tree and save yourself the hassle of the watering, decorating and not to mention storing. Once the festive season has wound up, roll up the print ready for next year.
Create a fabric garland using remnants of fabrics you have from previous projects. You can work with colour coordinating the remnants for the Christmas vibe you are after or use white for a neutral look. Consider creating a garland that can be used for celebrations throughout the year.
Create a festive and warming table settings that plays on colours and shapes that work well for Christmas, yet also translate to a mid winter dinner party. Make it Green without using common Christmas themes. The way you style a colour and texture can present the Christmas feel, yet when the elements are individualised they can be used time and time again. It’s a great way to utilise festive décor without screaming Christmas.
Furoshiki is the traditional cloth and method of wrapping used in Japan for carrying and presenting gifts. This one we love, it’s almost like giving two gifts especially to your sewing friends. Wrap your presents in fabric, extra points if you designed it yourself! It’s great for using up those bits of scraps that you just love but don’t quite have enough to use for your next project.
