Saw this tutorial on Japanese folded bags and thought someone might find it useful - it's such a simple idea and looks as though it'd be really effective, I've not tried it yet Smiley

http://community.livejournal.com/naturalliving/3904866.html

The first bag he makes is clever, my first thought was 'wow, I wouldn't want to turn my back on my fabric stash with him around!!' Once he's wrapped everything that moved and some things that didn't you soon realise he's selling the cloth to make the bags, very Eco friendly ... until you get to the end and realise that he's selling them in not one but two paper bags!!  Grin

If anyone tries out the idea please post and let us know how it turned out Smiley

One does not simply walk into Mordor. Its black gates are guarded by more than just orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep. The great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, ash, and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume.......

I can totally see myself taking a thin receiving blanket and using it to carry a travel pack of wipes and a couple spare diapers...all set for naptime on the go! Amazing!
