>THE CORIANDER TRAIN STOPPED AT… MYFUROSHIKI

The myfuroshiki range of furoshiki is inspired by the Japanese tradition of using fabric to wrap gifts, make bags & create decorative wall hangings.

I totally fell in love with the idea and Japanese tradition, please check their shop and read what the artist says:

Hello, my name is Michiko Yasue and my sister Olivia and I form myfuroshiki, dedicated to the design and production of fabric wrapping cloths and accessories. The myfuroshiki range of furoshiki is inspired by the Japanese tradition of using fabric to wrap gifts, make bags & create decorative wall hangings. We offer a range of fabrics including our own designs, hand printed & tie-dyed onto cotton cloths, as well as a selection of gorgeous prints & woven checks that we have sourced. myfuroshiki are fun, fuss-free, affordable & eco-friendly. No tearing, no scissors, no sticky tape, no waste. Just one or two simple knots & even the oddest shaped object can look impressive. Please have a look at our blog at myfuroshiki.blogspot.com for more ideas on how to use furoshiki. We hope you’ll love them as much as we do – it’s the wrapping revolution!

>WIPs – NOT CROCHETED…

by izabela

>I started teaching myself to make Kanzashi flowers, I know – I want to learn too many crafts and I will never be great with one, but everything I see and like I want to try, so I thought I will share my first attempt at this; what was not too good because I messed everything up, but the idea of this trinket is very nice…

Zaczelam uczyc sie robic kwiaty Kanzashi, wiem ze chce sie nauczyc za wiele i nigdy bede dobra w zadnej z nich, ale jesli cos widze i podoba mi sie to zaraz chce sprobowac, wiec pomyslalam ze pierwsza probka tez sie podziele; ktora wlasciwie nie jest za dobra bo wszystko popsulam, ale sam pomysl na ta ozdobke jest dobry…



first I made squares 1,5″ and tried to make a petal and I found them too big (me – stupid)
then I made them half the size and made a flower, but decided I need “something different”
and last when I started making “it different”, the petals started to fall apart because the glue was still soft and I have no practice yet, and you can see the mess

najpierw przygotowalam kwadraty 4 cm i sprobowalam zrobic platek ale nie pasowal mi bo wydawal sie za duzy (glupia ja)
potem zmniejszylam rozmiar o polowe i zrobilam sliczny kwiatek, ale zdecydowalam zrobic “cos innego”
i ostatecznie zaczelam robic “cos innego”, platki zaczely odpadac bo klej byl jeszcze miekki i nie mam jeszcze praktyki , i mozecie zobaczyc ten balagan

I thought as well I share little progress on commission for a friend

pomyslalam rowniez, ze warto byloby podzielic sie postepem w pracy nad specjalnym zamowieniem dla przyjaciela…
