Wrapagami: The Art of Fabric Gift Wraps
By: Jennifer Playford
Wrapagami teaches how to use simple twists and ties plus a simple square of fabric for gift wrapping. This technique is derived from the ancient Japanese tradition called tsutsumi—the added bonus is that it is eco-friendly and very easy to learn.
The book itself is very colorful and cheerful looking. I really like that it has very clear and easy to follow diagrams too. So many of us (even those of us that don't really sew) have stashes of fabric that could easily turn into attractive wrapping material in just a couple of minutes.
I can see myself using some of the ideas here particularly for difficult to wrap gifts. Those that make you crumple up wrapping paper in frustration, after you've tried unsuccessfully to stick that pointy end that keeps tearing hole through it all. It always happens when you're in a hurry too. Been there?
