You saw the afghan. You saw the poem I wrote for the card. Now you get to see the wrapping. I don't pretend to sophistication, but when it comes to practicality, I have an edge. Paper wrapping is pretty, but it ends up in the trash. And when wrapping something soft like an afghan, it requires a box besides. Why not wrap gifts with something useful?
A simple draw string bag can be used to store the afghan, sheets, or linens for years. I made this one out of the lining from a cast off set of drapes. A more elegant fabric and a better seamstress could make something much classier and still very useful.
For the present I didn't draw the string, but folded and pinned it.
I added some yarn and a felt flower. When I have one available, a reusable brooch is nice for adorning this type of package.
No losing the card to this gift! The envelope is pinned on under the flower.
