I wrote you a letter

It’s funny isn’t it? Although the world keeps getting more and more wizzy it’s the simple traditional things in life that bring us most joy. Take the humble letter for example. Gone are the days when we wait for the postman to come up the path, today we just need to turn on our phone to check our messages and emails. For today’s blog post we say power to the pencil and challenge you to make someone’s day by popping a letter in the post.

We just love this crochet envelope tutorial we discovered over at Violet Bella‘s blogspot from guest blogger Meredith, aka One Sheepish Girl .

If you are new to crochet this is a great first project. We would just love to recieve a letter like this (hint hint).
