easy peasy lemon squeezy

Am off to a 1st birthday party with Lily & George, so thought I'd show the wrapped presents that we're taking along. A little something for birthday boy's older brother - a dinky toy car wrapped in a mini fish furoshiki, using a 1 knot basic wrap. For the main man's present - a book, a Thomas the Tank Engine toy & a card wrapped up in a medium lime crinkle furoshiki, using the 2 knot four leaf wrap. Total wrapping time about 2mins - no sticky tape, no tearing, no scissors, no waste. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!!

Looking forward to tea & cakes.

We've madeit!

A Very Happy New Year from Down Under!

Good news for our Australian shoppers, we've opened an online shop with the Australian handmade market, madeit. The link is listed to the right of our blog with the rest of the online shops, there's also the madeit widget that you can use to access the site, or simply click here.

Check out our pretty reversible furoshiki bags which come with illustrations for knotting 9 different styles. Sling one over your shoulder and head to the beach (a bag, mat, picnic cloth & sarong all in one!).

Have fun shopping and please contact me if you have any queries or special requests.
