Ten ways I love to use tea towels

When did my love of tea towels begin?
Well it wasn't at the kitchen sink!

Inspiration came when I saw these wonderful tea towels at StudioPatro
They describe it so beautifully:

"what is a tea towel?


essential kitchen accomplice

natural and absorbent

thoughtful, responsible giving

washable and reusable

classic cook's tool

better than a paper towel

motivator to dry the dishes

dish towel or art?"


Reading the constantly inspiring Treefall today, I was introduced to Skinny Laminx 
and her amazing T-towel designs in her Etsy shop. 
Had to buy this one for the IKEA man in my life!


The thought popped into my head that I really needed to know how
 to use these tea towels for wrapping gifts japanese style, Furoshiki to be precise.

Furoshiki in a nutshell = the origami of cloth


Do you believe in synchronicity?
 I do ... 
no sooner had the wrapping idea come to me 
than I was led to click on this link with a twist!


Further investigation led me here and now I am madly practising wrapping anything to get my skill level up.

Go further and watch this clip to make a kangaroo wrap

I had to end with my own effort

Ps Sorry, this  blog has link overload - but I just kept finding more and more that I wanted to share with you.

Thanks for your comments - Rufus is a born performer and a few treats are all he needs as incentive. I think he loves the camera!
