Furoshiki are squares of cloth used to wrap presents in Japan.  I picked up 9 of them from Taobao but you can find them in lots of places online.



I just sewed them all together!  Quick and colourful!  I really want to make a quilt out of them too.



Some of my favourite details...





There are a few more detailed pics on my blog and info on how I bought the furoshiki...it involves navigating a website entirely in Chinese though so might be easier to check out Ebay for them if you want to give this a go!

So cute! I really like Japanese art. That culture seems so playful! Nice job.
