Have you ever heard of bojagi sewing? If not, you are about to discover a great method. Bojagi sewing is a traditional Korean technique of wrapping and sewing fabrics to create elegant and functional wrappings. It's like the art of gift wrapping, but with a unique and historic twist!

How does this wonderful textile art form work? Well, it's quite simple. First, you need a bunch of fabric scraps, in whatever colours and patterns you want. They can be of different sizes and shapes, which means you can let your creativity run wild. Then comes the fun part, it's time to get sewing.

Bojagi sewing involves joining the fabric scraps together using a special sewing technique. You can choose to sew by hand or with a sewing machine, whatever takes your fancy. The aim is to create a larger, sturdier piece of fabric that you can use to wrap everything from gifts to food.

The impressive thing about bojagi sewing is that there are no strict rules. You can experiment with different sewing patterns, combine fabrics of different colours and textures and let your imagination run wild! What's more, bojagi sewing is environmentally friendly, as it makes the most of fabric scraps and reduces waste.
