Furoshiki Cushion

I have covered a cushion at home with a Vintage Scarf using a Furoshiki wrapping method. It looks good from the front and the back and shows off the scarf beautifully! This is how I did it:

Denise, my goodness, I absolutely love it, you are soooo creative. Thanks for sharing how you did it...I'll be on the lookout for the right scarf on my thrifting travels....and I have a cushion just begging for a make over.

I am really enjoying your posts about "furoshiki" and what a beautiful cushion. Christmas 2006 saw me attempting to wrap all my gifts in this style (I used red shweshwe). See my flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/black_kat/329020425/
