Mint Petals

Added Nov 9, 2009

Nashville, Tenne...






Lately I have become obsessed with fabric origami, creating numerous flowers and other shapes in my free time, yet this is my favorite! I first saw the design on a Derecuny dress I put in my notebook and it took a few hours to get the shape right but I finally figured it out and this was the first piece that looked awesome. I got the fabric from my grandmother’s leftover quilt pieces, and it turned out quite nicely!

Soon I plan to create a little how to on the petals, once I get my act together…

    Ohhhh!! I love your origami!

    Great way to update boring old flower petals. I love it when someone steps out and mixes it up.

    Great work!!

    Where is it? I thought it was the Make Fabric Origami thing, but that doesn’t look like it.
