Packages We Love

18 Packages that Won Our Hearts with Handmade Gifts

May 29, 2019

One thing we love about FibreShare is that, it’s not just a transactional exchange of yarn. In fact, it seems that most participants spend *hours* assembling their package, and often make a special gift to tuck inside!

Homemade gifts are awesome because they’re inherently special, they’re affordable, you can make them small and lightweight (which helps with shipping costs), and like.. honestly anyone who does yarn crafts is going to appreciate the heck out of homemade. So there’s a good bet that your partner is going to be *knitworthy* 😉

SO, heres a roundup of some of our favorite packages that included homemade gifts, such as:

  • Woven necklace
  • Macrame ornament
  • Knit, Crochet, Sewn, or Felted toy
  • Knit or Crochet Washcloth
  • Crochet or Woven Coasters
  • Homemade bookmark
  • Hand sewn project bag
  • Punch needle decor
  • Knit or Crochet Hat
  • Knitted bunting
  • Hand sewn and/or hand dyed potpourri pouch
  • Macrame or Woven keychain

Will YOU make something cute for your next FibreShare partner? We hope so!!

Big thanks to everyone who shared these photos with us via the hashtag #fibreshare!

#fibreshare goodness! I was spoiled soooo much from Athena Forbes aka @knitsnknacks Not only she designed this beautiful hat with my motto, she also made me one… and it fits!!! (Go to her profile and get the pattern) She sent me so many cute yarns that I didn’t know of and I am super grateful! And a skeinfor self stripping socks with 12 colors from @tinyhumanknits so it will keep me interested! Let’s see! 🤞🏼 She also sent me the @grocerygirlsknit pin ❤️ and one that says “yarned & dangerous” 🎉 The buttons from @brickbubble are amazing! And the pompoms a dream! I am a big lover of soap and can’t wait to try the one she send me.. and also thank you for the treats and tea 🧡 … Thank you for the newspaper (I will read it), the card and your wonderful pattern “Strimmena” and the beautiful bag . . . . . . #treliz #colorispower #fiberismyweapon #teamtreliz #handdyedyarn #yarn #wool #yarnporn #tricot #strikking #knitting #embracecolor #powerofnow #alltheknits #alltheknitters #knittersdoitbette #indiedyer #spoiled #thankyou #grateful

***Fibreshare Share!*** I am finally posting my FibreShare package after having received it for awhile now. My FibreShare partner is Jacqueline @jacqueline.willson and she lives and works in Japan with her husband. So this package is full of Japanese goodies which is SO fun. And so super special. From top middle clockwise **potpourri pouch that made the box smell heavenly. ** a green (my favourite) pottery votive candle holder ** some adorable stamps out of round wood ** a notebook, pen and washi tape ** some teas and coffee ** two wooly neutral yarn goodies ** gorgeous green (my favourite) hand dyed fingering weight yarn from Australia ** a naturally dyed with onions gorgeous yellow yarn hank **AND the highlight!! Is the gorgeous triangle bunting that Jaqueline HANDSPUN with her own yarn and knit for my daughter. I mean I’m not crying. You’re crying. I can’t wait to hang this in her room. **not featured due to immediate consumption – was delicious candy treats and two chip bags with interesting flavours of chicken, and salt and seaweed. I mean YES! Chips are my weakness. Thank you thank you thank you – Jacqueline. It’s obvious the time and care you put into this package and I love everything and am grateful to have met you.

Generosity: noun – gen•er•os•i•ty. 1) the quality or fact of being kind and generous // “a person of great generosity” If there’s one word to describe my @fibreshare partner this round, it’s generosity. The description fits @clementinepepper to a T. I am overwhelmed at the thought, effort and LOVE poured into this package, the colors are eye catching, the textures are luxurious, the extras are so thoughtful… and this bag. I freaking LOVE bags. I hoard them. I have a million projects going at once and keep them all in bags. They’re my guilty pleasure… but this bag… THIS BAG. If all of you don’t tag @taylorswift so she sees it then we can’t be friends. Clementine freaking embroidered the REP logo onto a YARN BAG FOR ME! Then as if she was in cahoots with Tay Tay all along, added the prettiest lil feminine flowers which just scream the TS7 aesthetic. It’s the perfect combo, and it will be treasured forever as it combines my two favorite things, Taylor Swift and yarn. Thank you Clementine for this incredible fibreshare package, I’m so glad we were connected through this incredible fiber community and I cannot wait to see the rest of your *gorgeous* creations. (See what I did there?) P.S. Tay, you gotta hire Clementine to design some merch. #maddiemakesthings #fibercado • • • • • #makersgonnamake #yarnhoarder #yarnstagram #ontheloom #fiberart #yarn #mymakerslife #yarnhaul #weaving #anthrostyle #weareweavers #roving #weaversofinstagram #weavingtutorial #TS7 #fibreshare #weaversoftheworld #weavingloom #taylorswift #fibercadocommunity #creativehappylife #handsandhustle #weavingloom #makersmovement #mycreativebiz #reputation #darlingmovement #abmlifeiscolorful
