    I just shaved off nearly all of my hear, so I’ll certainly be trying this to ‘distract’ any attention from my hairdo :D I thank you for the great idea and how-to!

      Hey thanks! To tell you the truth, I don’t mess around with this site too much so I don’t know how you add a friend, sorry.
      I bet you could try using silk Duppioni. I personally haven’t tried using it but give it a shot!

    That’s really nice, thank you for sharing! I guess it would also be a great way to ‘pimp’ a plain t-shirt. I used to make these origami cranes, I bet you could also sew them onto a top….hmmm…inspired!
