My first patchwork

I just finished this patchwork furoshiki following this mairuru's tutorial. I've never did nothing with patchwork but I wanted do something and here is it.

But what is a furoshiki?
Is a square of fabric about 50-60 cms and can be used in many ways.I use it as a lunchbox and when I go to the grocery store for few things. Here an example:
Put the things you want to wrap on the furoshiki's center

Then do this

and the other side
and finally tie up the ends with double knot

Here a page with other examples.This is a great idea for use fabric instead of plastic! PLEASE try it!
Thanks Mairuru for this tutorial ^_^
Sorry if my english wasn't correct.
