the coolest crocheted idea.

i always get a little excited when i find something new that would help to minimize my stash, but also make gift giving that much more special.
i know it's still technically august... but a lot of you are thinking ahead to holiday gifts... and organizing yourselves in terms of what to make, and who it should be for.
but really, not everyone will be able to have one of your fantastic hand-made items... will they?
it's time consuming!! but i did find something that you could create.. (if you're a crocheter... and even if you're not.. it's really the easiest thing to learn.. trust me this is a beginner pattern) that would just give that extra pow to the gift.

so if you have to have a store bought gift, you can still add the handmade touch to it...
ready?.. of course you are...


seriously. isn't this just the perfect idea?? i love it. this is a design by meredith of the blog one sheepsih girl. i've been following her blog for a little while. and i love it.  when i saw this little baby on pinterest, i actually recognized her nails. haha no i'm not a freak, but a lot of her photos have her pretty coloured nails in them, and the style just looked recognizable. ya know?



how freaking cool is this?! i love it. anyways, she had posted this on another site as a guest poster, and it really took me a long time to find the actual pattern, because the original site was changed, and then i had to go through the archives to find it. but i'm happy to say i finally did! haha!

so if you want to start stocking up on these nifty envelopes to add to your gift. (be it store bought, or handmade)...
head on over to this site where you can find the full pattern.

wahoo! happy hooking dear friends!

what are you up to today? what's on your hooks and or needles? i'm working on several things.. (of course). and one of which being the new monster for owen. this yarn is soooo squishy! but now i think i need to be hooking some pretty little envelopes! xo
