Have you ever found yourself in need of a way to carry stuff on a bike when you don't have a carrier?  A plastic grocery bag isn't a great solution - it is unbalanced and can bang around and get in the way. Furoshiki to the rescue! A Furoshiki is a Japanese wrapping cloth.  They are very useful and eco-friendly. Any squarish piece of fabric with a finished edge can be a furoshiki.  The size you use depends on how you are using it.  Most people have at least one bandanna around the house, so that is what I am using in this instructable. 

Step 1: Lay it out

Lay your bandanna out flat.  For the purpose of this instructable, we'll call the top two corners A and B, and the bottom two C and D.
Thank you for this. Amazing use of a bandana handkerchief. One I had not thought of ... "Birang Silat: The Handkerchief Dance" - my Filipino-style use of the handkerchief as a Martial Arts flexible weapon at: http://www.cafepress.com/meijin4.767729350
