Summer Handbags – 夏のハンドバッグ

I have been waiting all year to be able to use this birthday present! In the package was a furoshiki (a square piece of fabric), two hoops and the directions to make this perfect summer handbag. Furoshiki are abundant here in Japan. Everyone has one (or 10) in their homes. They are the equivalent to an‘extra bottle of wine’ in North America; you never know when you need a hostess gift, a last minute present, or to have on hand for yourself.


And since Furoshiki are usually cotton and almost always colorful, once you have handles, it’s easy to make a quick summer purse that goes well with yukata!
