Wrapping a Wine Bottle (Wine Zutsumi)

1. Place several rubber bands around the neck of the wine bottle and stand the bottle at the center of furoshiki where diagonal lines a-b and c-d cross.

2. Lift corners "a" and "b," fold the actual corners inside at the bottle neck, and shirr the fabric. Secure the fabric against the bottle with the rubber bands. (The rubber bands will be on the outside of the fabric.)

3. Lift corners "c" and "d," cross them behind the neck, and bring the ends to the front of the bottle.

4. Tie corners "c" and "d" in a ma-musubi knot, concealing the rubber bands holding the first two corners.

5. Arrange the fabric nicely in frills.。
