How to crochet: last minute gift for your special day, quick and fun!

last minute gifts

Have no time to prepare a gift for your special day?

But you still want to give a good impression for the gift.

So you are in the right place.

This idea I got yesterday when I played an origami game with my little niece.

In a special day, people generally bring a present right? and sometimes they add a letter with a common envelope as a perfect match for the gift.

That’s when I have an idea “why didn’t I make a tutorial on how to crochet an envelope as last minute gift for my readers”.

Maybe it’s not a fancy gift, but with the effort, someone will know that you are truly sincere.

This project is perfect for you who has a busy schedule and have no idea what to give for someone in a special day because this project only needs a little time to finish, fun to make and it’s unique in other words.

So without being said, let’s get started!
