It’s a Wrap

photos 203 I won this book, Wrapagami in a drawing on CraftyPod.  It just arrived yesterday.  It’s about ways to wrap gifts and stuff using fabric or a “furoshiki”.  It is so cool, the instructions are easy to follow, the wrapping is fun, plus the book is really pretty.  Not that that’s what makes a good book.  It also has tips on other uses and some of the history of the furoshiki and wrapping.

  1. Congrats on the win! Looks like a fun book! I've used furoshiki to wrap bentos to take to work with me.
