When I first began my shop I took pride in packaging each item sold with vintage ribbon tied around tissue paper. But my kids, much more eco conscious than I ever was at their ages, interrupted my packaging process one day with their comments that I wasn’t staying true to Wear Love Now by buying paper and using it. Such a great point, and yet, I wanted my clothes to be sent off in something pretty and protective. Soon after, I discovered pillowcases could be purchased at my local thrift shop for under $1. and I could cut and sew each to create 2-4 gift bags. Soon my kids were helping rip old jeans for handles and viola Wear Love Now’s gift bags were created.
This coming week I will post a DIY lesson on how you can make these sweet gift bags for your Christmas presents, library books, knitting projects or hostess gifts.
I’m so thankful that my kids’ hearts and eyes keep me focused on what is good and true in my little shop, Wear Love Now!
