Using cloth makes the objects more durable and resistant to water; Florence Temko was an icon in the origami community in the US; provides detailed information on preparing cloth for folding Everybody knows that origami is the art of folding paper. What if you could fold up a piece of decorated cloth in the same way to make an object that is just as beautiful but much more lasting than paper? Like a wallet, lovely earrings or a decorative napkin ring? Fabrigami is the art of folding beautiful fabrics to create three-dimensional objects ranging from the practical to the whimsical. It was developed by Jill Stovall working with one of the origami world s greatest icons, Florence Temko, just before she passed away. Now with the help of one of origami s rising young stars, Scott Stern, she brings Temko s last work to print for everyone to use and enjoy. Like paper, there are countless beautiful fabric designs to choose from, and, unlike paper, fabric has the virtue of being extremely durable and useful in a wide range of applications. This book begins by presenting instructions on how to treat fabric so it holds a shape when folded. Then it provides you with a series of fun projects with easy-to-follow diagrams that you can use to make things you can use in your home or to accent a gift wrapping, or as a dinner table decoration.
