Jul.Christmas.Noel - Loopy Gift Wrap

 


Jul.Christmas.Noel – Loopy Gift Wrap

 

is a Quick & Easy way to

 

 have fun,

save money,

jazz up presents,

  & prepare for Christmas.

 “Christmas?!”

 

I hear you cry

(I have batfink ears).

 

You read correctly,

there’s only 12 weeks (ish) until tinselfest

and I need to get my bikini on.

 (so to speak)

I may have lived ‘down under’

for 10 years,

 

but I always get blindsided

by the Summer -Christmas 

mash up.

 

side bar – If you are new to my blog,

I call this seasonal mash up Chrummertime.

 

And yes, that is Mc Hammer you can hear

in the background.

To avoid getting stressed out

and sunburnt,

 

I am now going to start

sneaking in Christmas related posts.

This weeks Chrummertime offering

 

is for all of those that love gift wrapping

(me included).

In less than 10 minutes, you can chain up (crochet)

colourful 1 meter long strips for gift wrapping.

For my string,

I used a combination of machine

cotton & polyester overlocking thread

with a 4.50mm hook,

and varied the size of my chains as I went along.

 

You end up with a beautiful mix of colours and ‘loopy’ string,

perfect for decorating gifts.

Messy can be good!

 Before I go and plan my next

Chrummertime project,

 

Big Thanks to Katrina over at

for showing me how to animate stuff.

 

I can’t wait to unleash

more Gif’s!

    Thank you Karen!
    There’s nothing like structured procrastination. I might do a whole feature on it.
    cheers H
