seamonster

This is an idea for a different kind of giftwrapping. This gift is made for a friend who loves being at the beach. The giftbag and the friendly, little seamonster are made out of felt. The cord is from cotton with some seashells.


The gift is a styrofoam ball on which the seashells are glued on. This is a way to show the beauty that mother nature has in store for us because shells aren't shells. They are little houses with their own identity because each shell has his own pattern, colour, size and life before they ended onto the beach.

Have a great day.

I love the wrapping! I made a bag for my niece last year out of felted wool sweaters, and the scraps looked just like an octopus, which then went on to the bag as an applique. Yours is just lovely!
