...using the ancient art of Japanese Furoshiki
The ancient craft of Japanese Furoshiki dates back generations and was traditionally used for transporting goods. Sometimes it was used to pretty up a package intended as a gift. It is super simple to do and doesn’t require anything except for a pillow, fabric and your hands!
The two pillows in the center of the picture above were both covered using this technique and were completed and in use in mere moments! The variegated teal, lime and cream one on the left was covered by a piece of fabric rough cut off a bolt that I never got around to actually sewing into a cover to grace my morning room settee in warm-weather months. The multi-colored floral print on the pillow to it’s right is nothing more than an old sarong I pulled out of my drawer! I tucked the ends of the knot on the left-hand one because it was fraying fabric but I let the ones on the right add a bit of flair to the overall easygoing look.
But enough talk, let me show you how easy they are to make:
See how super simple? Think to use big square scarves, fabrics on the remnant table at your local store, heck I used a sarong! As long as you can fold it into a big enough square you’re good!
That’s all the skinny on looking good for less for today! If you make one be sure to hop on our Facebook page and tag me with your picture! I would love to see them!
In the meantime, ciao for now!
