That's really cool! haha at first i was like, "um, isn't he just making the standard hobo pouch-on-a-stick?" but then it got better. ;)

I love this method! Great and then serves as a table mat if I wrap my bento this way.


Just so you know it is furoshiki not furosuki.....=)

YES! That's how I use to take my lunch when I was a cubicle bod.

I had a table mat and a napkin. :)

What a great way to wrap Christmas presents! (no more chucking paper in bin) You can use the fabric every year! Thanks for sharing! (Can still probably get Christmas fabric on sale at this point)

Good goddess! What a great idea--there are theme fabric prints for all occasions.

I laughed at the end when they put their cool bags in to brown paper bags. Hah!

don't you just love how at the end they walk out of the store carrying their bag inside of a pouch inside of another bag? ahhhhhhhhh! *head explodes*

Very neat. Does it matter what type of cloth you use?

i've used woven cotton and a sturdy cotton knit (with the edges serged). the knit works great for bags, but i dont like it for wrapping things since there is so much give. i like the woven better for that.

i havent tried silk yet,but i think it would work great too (and you can get great prints for not much at shops that sell sari fabric).
