I mentioned earlier this week that I'm experimenting with fabric origami.
Well yesterday I made this little box.
To make the fabric stiff enough to fold and hold it's shape better, I used fusible webbing to stick two pieces of fabric together, then cut out a square using a paper template:
I then followed my origami instruction book (you can find the same instructions online here), and used my iron to help keep the creases in the fabric:
Then I secured the final folds with a couple of handstitches!
I made a paper box and a fabric one to compare:
And perfect for a little button storage..
Of course as soon as my girls came home from school they claimed the little box, and I'm sure they'll find all sorts of little trinkets to keep in it!
I can see more of these being made - and more exploration of fabric origami!
Any suggestions of what to try next?
To see what others have been up to in their creative spaces this week, head on over here.
I'll be linking this project to many of the fabulous linky parties whose pretty buttons are on the bottom of this page, and whose direct links are also on my linky party page.
