SMPCraft Moment #1: Furoshiki, A Stylish Eco-Conscious Gift in 60 Seconds

 

We’ve started making videos! SMPCraft Moments. They’ll be short bursts of crafty inspiration, tips, and tricks.

For our very first SMPCraft Moment, we decided that with all of the holiday parties and inevitable wine bottle transporting we’ll be doing, we’d show you a cool, clever, super-easy, sustainably-minded way to wrap and transport two bottles of wine. Wrapping the wine takes less than a minute from start to finish and all you need is a square piece of fabric and two bottles of wine.

 

 

Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used to transport food, books, clothes, gifts, and other goods. It’s environmentally friendly, reusable, and has multiple special occasion and daily uses. Consider Furoshiki as an alternative to wrapping paper and plastic bags that also easily transforms into a chic hobo bag, tote, or sling!

Find the 2-bottle wrap and 24 other invaluable time-saving furoshiki techniques in Wrapagami: The Art of Fabric Gift Wraps by Jennifer Playford. It’s become our go-to last-minute savior, especially during this busy holiday season.
