We wanted to give origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, a little BurdaStyle: instead of paper, we are using fabric! With a little bit of fabric stiffener and patience, you can use classic origami patterns to make fabric sculptures to top of gifts, brooches, fascinators, wreaths…. Your imagination is your only limit!
Fabric stiffener, available at craft and art stores. Follow manufacturer’s instructions.
Small pieces of thin woven fabrics; we used silk taffeta
L-square, chalk, scissors, origami instructions
