Origami…

Colour Project – White Part 7

I have been playing around with paper origami shapes suitable to convert into fabric. Once again looking at sheer/layers to white. This had varying success. It needs to be a REALLY simple fold, fabric needs to not be springy or too slippery.

 

Paper samples in tissue.

Love the stars, although too complex for fabric.

 

 

 

 

Fabric samples – Silk organza, too bouncy, cotton lawn ok.

The lotus, bottom left has potential.

 

 

This idea is from my Nanna’s gingham cushions.

 

A bit of research (Google) on smocking and the next sample…

 

 

 

 

4 layers of silk organza machine stitched, cut away and hand stitched following a patchwork block.

 

Habutai Silk 1 layer cut away, folded back and stitched with running stitch.
