Gallery: HOW TO: Make a Furoshiki Gift Wrap Satchel Out of an Old Shirt

 

STEP 1:

Lay your shirt flat on the floor. If your shirt has buttons, we suggest laying it button side up, but after you try out your furoshiki satchel once, you can see which you prefer better. You can always untie it and redo it! Then place your gift in the the center of your shirt so that the edges of it are perpendicular to the corners of your shirt. In other words, the corner of your gift should not be facing the same way as the bottom corners of your shirt (see pic).

MATERIALS:

- A long sleeved shirt. The thinner the shirt, the easier it will be to turn it into a satchel. - A gift to wrap (one that will fit in the center of your shirt with at least 6 inches or so to spare on the sides will work best)
