Bindle Gift

For some reason, I've always thought the concept of a bindle stick (AKA hobo stick) is cool. They're often seen being toted by cartoon characters or in vintage photos. Since I've never seen one in real life, I decided to wrap my husband's birthday presents in a bindle stick.

 First I got the materials together: red and white fabric (although the standard is polka dot, I really liked this pattern), presents, and a sturdy stick. Seriously, how perfect is that stick? Then I simply bundled the gifts in the fabric and knotted it around the stick. 

This is a horrible pic...I had to remove the background b/c it was just TOO busy. Anyways, it's really a bindle stick! Yay! Jer got a kick out of it.

Murphy had a blast helping open presents!
