Since I own my embroidery machine, my friends get embroidered somethings at every occasion. As it was yesterday. A dear friend had wished for her birthday to get a donation for attending a special piano concert. Instead of giving her an envelope we packed the money into a zipper bag with an embroidered keyboard (design by Urban Threads) with clef keyfob as charm (design by Rock Queen). And the fabric for the inside of the bag our friend had chosen unknowingly at our latest visit to the fabric market, a white cotton fabric with black musical notes on it.
As it is usual in our clique we gave her the present in a wicker basket that wanders from friend to friend with each birthday. But the zipper bag is small and seemed lost in that basket so we had to do some decoration. And so our friend got a lot of tea bags with words of wisdom, a parcel of self-made chocolates and for her self-pressed wide two wine bottle tags (Blank Tags by EmbroiderLibrary, grapeviny by elfenidee and font of the machine). What a nice present, as it brought joy to us that gave it and also to the recipient as it seemed.
