Furoshiki love

Posted on July 14 2015

Sometimes you just need to drop everything and take a drive to the beach. Saturday we packed up the kids and took a drive out to watch the sunset. Of course all three kids were asleep before we even got there... So the treats I packed ended up being the perfect things for a car picnic for the adults. It was also the perfect time to test out the Ambatalia goodies I picked up from the shop. I've talked about the bento bags and how much we all love them. We do! They are too cool. I've been stuffing mine with yarn but tonight I packed it with a small jar of mini marshmallows, treats from the trail mix bar at Whole Foods, and mugs for hot cocoa. 20140405-223328.jpg I tucked the bento bag in my furoshiki and knitted it up into a bag. Ok seriously so cool!! Who knew a square of fabric could be so fun!? My good buddy, Vanessa, often uses one to carry hot food to parties. It looks super cool and I always wondered what it was she was carrying. I had no idea it was just fabric tied fancy. Molly of Ambatalia is so awesome. She loves her sustainable fibers and multifunctional pieces. When you buy her Furoshiki you'll get her diagrams for lots of folding and tying to create pretty packaging. How to tie up two wine bottles to bring to a host/ hostess?! So cool! 20140405-223425.jpg It was such a beautiful sunset and I really loved the cool furoshiki and my "picnic bag" 20140405-223829.jpg Check out the bags, bentos, napkins, aprons and furoshiki we carry. Happy furoshiki (ing!) xx Ash
