{ Alternative gift wrap }

Last Christmas, in an effort to use fun alternative packaging, I sewed all the Christmas gifts I gave inside little fabric pouches I made from funky Christmas tree fabric. It made for no hassle at the airport for transporting already wrapped presents, and it set my gifts apart, which is always fun. Today, for my good friend Marie's birthday, I decided to use yarn as her gift wrap medium. It took about two hours to crochet the little pouch I wrapped her dessert cookbook in. It probably wasn't the most efficient wrapping method, but it turned out pretty cute and in the end I think it was worth doing at least once. Yarn wrap? Sure, why not.

Just for the record, I was the typical male wondering why somebody would ever "waste time" doing something like that. "KNIT your WRAPPING PAPER??"
(the practicalist and minimalist) :) But it made a difference to Marie, and I've learned something from that.
