What if the hokey-pokey really is what it's all about?



Again while trolling wine blogs, I found a great demonstration chez Dr. Vino of a furoshiki wine bottle carrier. What a fabulous idea! It’s so simple, pratical, and beautiful. I am never creative enough to think of that kind of thing on my own. Following the links, I took a peek at Japan’s Ministry of the Environment page on furoshiki foldings and usage. It struck me as a brilliant way to create workhorse carryalls, but also as a gorgeous way to wrap gifts. So I’m stashing it here for future inspiration. You can buy legit furoshiki online for about $10, but it seems like it would with any fabric or scarf of the right dimensions.

    This actually is coming in even more handy for me! I have a baby shower this weekend, for a friend who is having twins and I made each a baby blanket, and then each a pack of preemie diapers. Now I can wrap the diapers in the blankets!! Perfect! :) Thanks Kat, I love your info!
