Here at Loop we don’t play the Christmas music until December, and we don’t start posting wrapped Christmas present pictures before then either!
Today we have some charming ideas for wrapping your gifts using beautiful yarn and trim, as well as the beginning of our Christmas gift giving ideas. And there’s a great little tutorial at the end on how to make a fabric parcel!
Gift Ideas Under £25
If you’re looking for a secret santa, small gift or stocking stuffer for a making friend, try one of these ideas for gifts under £25.
Looking for splurge ideas for yourself or a crafty friend? Any of the following would make delicious gifts!
On Susan’s recent trip to India, she found many beautiful embroidered and beaded ribbons and trims that she couldn’t resist getting for the shop.
They are perfect for decorating gifts or your home at this time of year.
We’ve used them to wrap presents and trim our Present Pockets with.
We like to make our gift wrap from fabric: it’s a great way to use up odd pieces of sewing left-overs, or reuse felted knits. The receiver is often just as excited to get the pouch as they are the gift inside.
Here’s our super quick make for a present pouch using any left over length of fabric and one of our beautiful embroidered ribbons.
We hope you enjoy holiday preparations as much as we do.
