Iron Craft Challenge #10 – Sewn Gift Wrap

My submission for In Stitches is in the form of gift wrapping. I needed to package up the Spring Scarf (just in time for the heat?!). I used tissue paper to make a package, and then sewed it.
There is a light, crisp feeling to the package with a pop from the acid green that I was not really able to capture in a photograph. I’m pleased with the result in person. I will definitely be using the sewing macine to sew gift wrap again.


  • Tissue Paper
  • colorful thread
  • scissors
  • sewing machine
  • double sided tape (optional)

Take the tissue and fold it over the object you want to wrap. Set your machine to zig zag. Run the stitches around the edge. (adjust when you need to, being careful not to sew over the present.)
I made two triangles. And then sewed them together at the point.

I liked the triangle, very much actually. And then, ha, I got it into my head that it might look like a diaper.

So I folded the outside corners under, and folded the top flap down, and made an envelope.
