experimenting :: fabric origami

I've been thinking about what to make for the handmade ornament swap, and wondering if I can apply some of the clever paper origami designs to fabric. This morning I tried this wreath design with some of my Fan fabric ...


I really love this design, but I need to make it bigger and use the Fan linen/cotton as it is not quite as heavy as the hemp/organic cotton that I used for this one. I'd also like to be able to overstitch it on the machine. Take two of this idea will be happening in my creative space this afternoon.

More spaces and creativity here every Thursday. Have a great day!

Ooo ... that looks amazing. It also looks really tricky to make. I imagine it would be fun to do some stitching over the top.

What a great idea to make it in fabric. It looks terrific. I'm filing this away for future use.
