工欲善其事,必先利其器 – Sharp tools to make quality craft no.4 – Video Instructions for Ikebana Shears Cases Tenugui and Furoshiki versions

Fold Hana Basami (Ikebana Shears) Case with Tenugui (Japanese Towel)

Instructions to fold a Japanese Towel into a case to store the ikebana shears. The towels are quite standard in size, they are mostly approximately 35cmx 87cm and are made in cotton. For photo instructions, please refer to the previous post.

What you need:

1 Japanese Tenugui or fabric in similar size. Since all edges are hidden, you do not need to finish fray edges.

Fold Hana Basami (Ikebana Shears) Case with Furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth)

This is very similar with the method above except it uses a furoshiki instead of a tenugui. Furoshikis are traditional square Japanese wrapping cloths. They can be used in many ways and I particularly like to use them as carrying bags for my ikebana tools. They come in different sizes and I use one that is approximately 50x50cm. The method is very similar to the Tenugui one.

What you need:

1 50x50cm Furoshiki. Can be replaced with a piece of cotton fabric in similar size.
