Elk + Pine Tree Tote // Gift Idea

Sometimes it's really nice when your friends have blogs, because when you tell them that you made their Christmas present but that you couldn't wait to share it on your blog, they understand. It's not weird. No, it is weird. Thankfully, she understands none the less. 

I decorated this tote for my friend, Erin, to keep all her knitting supplies in. I'm all about reusable bags, especially when they count as part of the actual gift. And judging by her blog name, I figured a pine tree stamp was the perfect fit. I used this technique for the pine trees, this elk stamp, and black fabric paint.

I filled Erin's tote with a variety of yarn, but you can fill it with whatever suits the receiver best. Hope this provides a bit of inspiration when it comes to delivering gifts this year.

 Ahem, Erin, if you're reading this, it better be December 26th.

p.s. Congratulations, Lydia!
