Shower Present

A friend I have known since 5th grade is about to get married so I knew I needed to whip up something for a shower present. She is about to go to school again so I thought ah ha a bookmark would be good.

I was able to use some of my stash yarn and quickly wipped up this Fan Bookmark. It is a really pretty pattern and I think I am going to have to make myself a scarf version like so many I have seen on ravelry.  I also couldnt stop with just a bookmark, not for someone I have known since 5th grade. I took all the pictures I had of her (yearbooks, girlscouts, etc) scaned and put them in a pattern and I covered the box the presents were in ( I also gave her a foot care kit) The box was a hit, I don’t think many of her friends had seen such old pictures of her and I had some good embarrassing ones.



  1. That bookmark is beautiful! I’m impressed you just whipped up something so gorgeous with what you had laying around.

  2. A fan scarf would look wonderful. And what a clever wrapping idea!

  3. You *are* a clever and thoughtful person. Nice job!
