Red Patchwork Pocket Furoshiki by Mich, myfuroshiki

Mich wrote a little more about this furoshiki, “…noting how the patchwork is sewn across the diagonals onto a calico backing so, when knotted into a bag, the patchwork forms external pockets.” Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths.

Here’s a great tutorial from Mai, and here’s a link to a PDF that shows how to fold furoshiki. Do you use fabric to wrap gifts? Share links, favorite tutorials and related blog posts in the comments!
