the Woolly-lope.

with love by ElsbethSometimes the best part of  receiving a gift is the way your friend wrapped it and today I want to share a different way to wrap little gifts.

I am sure your wool loving friends will LoVE this.

The Woolly-lope….an envelope that is made from wool.

(It is also a great way to use some of your small balls of wool so that you can go to the wool shop with a clear conscious!)


Start with a small crochet square.

My square consists of 7 dc rows. I used I Love Yarn Bamboo and cotton mix yarn in Lemon.

Close your square on two sides with your thread and needle to make it look like an envelope.

Now you have a woolly-lope!

Thread another piece of wool or string to the top of your woolly-lope so that you can close it.

I found some adorable crochet flowers in an art shop and attached them to the ends of my string.

Add your little wrapped gift, and close the woolly-lope with a little bow and voila….. a small square made with love.

This is so adorable and special!

What I enjoyed most of making these cute woolly-lopes is that you can let your creativity go and have FUN!

Here is another fun pom-pom woolly-lope.

I just glued little pom-poms all over and crochet a short chain to close the woolly-lope.

 


 

 Have a great week and if you decide to make one of these special woolly-lopes please share it on our facebook page so that we can enjoy your little creations!.

love from Elsbeth
