Reusable christmas wrapping paper
This afternoon I picked up the toys I had purchased on the Kmart Christmas layby. That's the last of the shopping done! I wrapped them up in the christmas fabric I sewed up a few weeks ago. I found them in the remnant bin at Lincraft last time I was there rummaging months ago so they were dirt cheap. Just needed a small hem all the way around to finish them off, which I did a couple of weeks ago.
They way I wrapped them is my own variation of the Japanese Furoshiki folding method. I used the Otsukai fold and made some changes to it. I like this fold as there is no need to fiddle with the knot making it easy for a child to open quickly.
