How to make a Japanese Furoshiki fabric gift wrap

Holiday gift giving time is here and once more everyone who sews is delving deep into sewing stashes for ideas. And discovering pieces of fabric from years past...

Really? That many years? Wow, vintage!

Here is a two for one win. Use some of them up as gift wrapping this year.

This is usually called a wine bottle wrap, but it can wrap almost any upright shape. Here are a couple examples and then the directions below for how to do it yourself.

Here is how:

Set your bottle in the center of a square of fabric. I used a head scarf here.

Stand the bottle up and you are done. If the top has loosened up, untie and re tie it.

Happy gift wrapping!
