A “Furoshiki” is a Japanese cloth used for wrapping things. It has become popular recently as an eco-friendly alternative to gift-wrap. It is basically a rectangular piece of fabric that can be folded and tied around an object in a number of different ways.
The black one started life as a shawl. I cut a 28″×30″ rectangle out of it. I used a piece of plain, black fabric I had lying around to line it. I simply sewed the two pieces together, right sides facing, leaving a small hole to turn. The smaller one is made from fabric that I used for a dress… didn’t like, so used for cushion covers and now re-purposed it into a smaller furoshiki square 18″×24″. I just turned the rough edges in 1/4", ironed, turned again and secured with a zig-zag stitch.
