Fabric Wrap

I made bread again. I actually make bread all the time. It's inexpensive, easy, creative and delicious! And makes a great hostess gift. I thought my wrapping was particularly fabulous this week as I wrapped up a freshly baked loaf for a neighbor who kindly hosted a dinner for friends. I cut a cheap piece of fabric, didn't use a ruler or anything, as the wrapping material. I say that to point out that anyone can use this wrapping technique. Just eye-ball it. Straight edges are not necessary. Check out the dollar fabric in Walmart sometime. You might not want them for sewing projects, but they make great (and CHEAP!) gift wrap. I do advise washing them first- just toss them in the regular wash and dry cycle with your laundry- so no funky chemicals get on your baked goods or gifts. Add a big grosgrain ribbon bow and call it a gift!






As I was walking out the door to dinner, this is what Sadie Kate was doing. Pouting in the leather chair. Woe is her. Life is so hard for a puppy and she felt very slighted to be snubbed a dinner invite! Sad, sad puppy!

Great idea! I have often wrapped a pie with a tea towel for the hostess to keep!

That is so pathetic looking. I mean Miss Sadie, not the bread. Poor girl. If we lived closer we would love to invite her over. The bread is lovely, I'm impressed and very cute/clever idea for wrapping. I'm making your wonderful acorn squash tonight. I loved the whole dinner you made, it looked so yummy.
I'm also making carrots for Mr. Picky because that is what he chose at the grocery, but just in case I'm keeping a side of Italian bread crumbs ready. I'll let you know.

I love how dogs think they have it so bad! My dog is pouting right now because I won't let her get on MY bed. She thinks it is her bed and I'm trying to break that habit.

Your posts about food always make me so hungry!

What a great idea! Not that I make bread...

I love that idea! I make bread quite frequently and I have lots of fabric lying around -- I'm definitely going to try this. Thank you! I love the combo of the blue checks and the green ribbon. I bet your hostess was thrilled to get that loaf of bread.
Poor Sadie Kate. My dog is a big pouter, too.

What a yummy and beautiful gift to give! I've always been intimidated by bread making...even though I love to bake!

Ms. Bright said...

What a great idea! I have tons of scraps! (Sadly, our Walmart no longer carries fabrics-boo!)

I responded to your comment over on my page, but in case you didn't see it...

I'm so glad to meet a sister...and that you're following, yay! I am too!

You make the best bread Miss PPC, and then put it in the prettiest packages! The ribbon is the perfect touch.

Baking is rather soothing for us, good for the soul. Does it seem that way to you?

Smiles at you!

Cute wrapping idea! If we lived near each other I would invite you to dinner all the time just for homemade bread - I absolutely love it!

Miss Janice said...

Your homemade bread gift is wonderful and the presentation is so cute! Love that little doggy!

Beautiful, and the recipient can always use the fabric again - go green!
