Very Last Minute Vintage Gifts!

Christmas Presents by Wysz on Flickr. Used under Creative Commons.

Sister Diane over on Craftypod has had a fabulous idea and written a great tutorial for turning an e-book into a last minute gift with a personal touch.

I can see you reading this, wondering how a download could possibly be a terribly personal gift, but read on...

Say, you wanted to give Vintage Gifts to Knit as a Christmas gift but realised that the printed version wouldn't come in the post in time (I'm sorry to say that you've definitely missed the last post at this point). Well, instead of just downloading the book from Ravelry and emailing it to the recipient, which is a bit boring really, you could nip out to your local computer shop and buy a funky memory stick and drop by the stationers for some bits and pieces. You'll be able to create a brilliant present...

Basically you need to go to Ravelry, purchase and download the book as normal and save it to your shiny new memory stick. Use Sister Diane's tutorial to make a festive presentation box, et voila! Vintage Gifts to Knit for Christmas without having to wait for the postman.

But Sister Diane can explain it far better than I can, so here is the link to Craftypod and the tutorial (you should really read Craftypod - it's full of really great ideas).

Here also is the link to Vintage Gifts to Knit on Ravelry, if you're so inclined :)

Do let us know if you decide to make Vintage Gifts to Knit, as your Christmas ebook gift.... or you could always send someone else the way of this blog post if you'd like to recieve it yourself!!

Happy Knitting
