Deco tutorial: how to wrap a gift with fabric
Step 1: Create a furoshiki package with the fabric squares
- Sew the furoshiki packaging by pricking place against place the 2 squares of 72 x 72 cm. Leave an opening of 10 cm to be able to turn it over.
- Turn the squares over and iron them carefully.
- Stitch all the way around the furoshiki packaging at 1mm from the edge.
Step 2: Pack the gift package
- Place the gift to be wrapped in the center of the furoshiki, aligning a long edge of the gift on the diagonal of the square.
2. Fold one of the corners over the gift.
3. Slide the tip of the corner of fabric that has just been folded under the gift.
4. Fold the opposite angle above the gift.
5. Fold the end of the angle slightly to reveal the reverse. This folding forms two points on either side of the package.
6. Fold the sides of one of the tips inwards, making sure to place the fabric against the gift.
7. Fold the tip over the package by placing the fabric against the gift.
8. Do the same with the other tip and then join the two points thus formed above the gift.
9. Tie the two tips formed using the golden ribbon.
10. And that’s the result!
The folding can also be reversed so that the print is dominant on the packaging.
