Yesterday's delivery of the ripple ghan and night shirt was a hit along with an unexpected delight.  Usually when I wrap something like the night shirt I like to tie a pretty ribbon around it and thought a bright pink would be nice, however, none to be found among the
ribbons I had.  So I improvised, and I think this is something that I will be doing again.  Using the same pink from the ripple ghan, I made a puff flower from a pattern I had, then taking two strands of yarn, I chained a length to fit around the night shirt and pulled through the flower into a bow.  My DIL loved it.  She may attach it to the ghan, she may use it as a head band. 
I'm thinking there are endless possibilites now for embelishing packages and gifts.  Ahhh, isn't crocheting just grand!  And the nicest part, I had someone who truly appreciated these labors of love.
Smiling large.

Wishing you a wonderful week.


  1. What a clever way to finish off that gift! Isn't it wonderful that she appreciates your fine work!!

  2. Oh, I love this! Love the color, too.

    It is always nice to make something for someone who will appreciate it. And I am more than sure your DIL will take well care of her gifts knowing the love that went into them.

    Blessings to you and yours always dearest friend.

  3. Great idea Glor. It looks pretty wrapped around the night shirt. :)

  4. What a great idea...I love the puff freaking cool

  5. Very nice, Gloria, and I'm so glad that your DIL is very appreciative of your work. :)

  6. I'm glad your DIL is appreciative of your handiwork, too. (The puff flower decoration is simply brilliant!) Crocheting truly is such a joy, all the time, but when it can make someone else smile, too, it becomes more than a gift.

  7. I love the idea! I should make stacks of these and tuck them away to have ready when needed... Happy to see you at Tangled Happy today! Wishing you a happy week. :)
