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