Hey y'all! A super fun challenge over at Just Us Girls this week....it's the gift bag challenge! I hope you like it and will have fun unleashing your creative spirits on the blank canvas of the ordinary gift bag.
Thanks to my super talented friend Samantha who is an amazingly creative and gifted crafter with yarn *hi Sam!*, I was lead to find tutorials on crocheting on youtube.....and made the above crocheted flower following this tutorial! This was so FUN!...especially since I am *not* gifted like my friend Samantha! I thought a crochet flower and a simple chain stitch "ribbon" would be a fun and cozy way to dress up my kraft colored gift bag.
By using an anywhere hole punch, I was able to punch some holes to thread my yarn ribbon through. Easy!
I used the same holes to tie my crochet rose to the bag. How fun will this be to fill up with yarn craft supplies....or as packaging to a hand crocheted custom beanie hat like my friend, Samantha, makes???
Ready for more inspiration? Check out
