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?"
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.
