Using leftover material from a thrift store dress and adding in a little bit of an origami style of folding I created this great new accessory for next to nothing!

Material Notes

upcycled poplin fabric, thread, needle, hot glue gun, plastic headband, rope ribbon

    I love origami! With a simple square piece of paper, or fabric in this case, you can make amazing things. Thank you so much for the how-to!

    To britynn89: I was just playing around with some scrap fabric one night and trying to sort of fold it like origami and after a few hours I finally made it work. It kind of looks like a quilting block technique but I’m not sure if this is how they do that. Thank you for your comment!

    To RecliningWhileDining: I’m happy that you like the idea and I guess you found the how-to ok. I am really happy to not just show my creations but to share the instructions with you all here! Have fun!
