Normally I don't like giving people money as a gift; I enjoy buying presents too much. But when my friend asked for a monetary gift for her birthday to contribute to her foreign trip fund, I thought it would be a nice opportunity to get a little crafty and add a personal touch to my gift.
I haven't had the time to make anything recently but this morning I was happily free so I decided to use one of my favourite techniques; sewing on card. I am ridiculously unable to use a sewing machine; I seem to break mine every time I try to use it, so sewing on card is a lovely alternative and oddly therapeutic.
If we're going to have to let money continue to exist, we might as well wrap it up nicely.
