Oodles of origami

I was inspired to try making these fabric origami squares by craftymeg’s how to as well as Cam557’s origami necklace. I made a couple necklaces for myself, and then two more as gifts for other people. For the first necklace I used a contrasting fabric to make the tie, and then for the rest I used some gold chain. This is a fun way to use small scraps, and I really like the different results I got when using printed fabric.

    These are great! I especially like the prints :) Did you connect the squares at the corners or sew them all down to one piece of fabric?

    Its very interesting and very pretty. Such a great and fabulous treatment to fabric. This would be great on say a skirt or top too! Love it!

    I really love the effect with the printed fabrics, I think I may have to give it a go as well :) how did you attach the chain, if I may ask?

      Thanks for your comment! I picked up some little matching gold rings when I got the chain and used those to attach the chain and fabric. I used a regular sewing needle to make a small hole where the ring went through. The only non-sewing tool I used was pliers to open and close the rings.
