A few months ago, I got a free get creative magazine from Spotlight (fabric and craft supplies store here in Australia).
It had a pattern in for a fabric origami bukuro (little bag) that I wanted to try.
I finally got around to it.
Basically you cut two fabric squares and sew them together, then use that finished square to do the origami with!
.... and here's the result:
First a pink one - cute little pockets in the front..
The soft, thin fabric made it easy to sew through all the folds..
And a little drawstring at the top to close it!
I also tried one in thicker fabric, which worked well too.
I've tried origami lots of times with paper - but must admit I'm not so good with the accuracy you need in the folding! Fabric is much more forgiving!
I see doing a quick google search online, there are endless possibilities for fabric origami! Wonderful! yet another project to add to my long list of things to try, make and do!
How about you? Have you ever tried origami fabric?
UPDATE: I've now added a photo tutorial showing how this bag is made:
