|Fabric Origami and Fabric Flowers (Kanzashi Technique)|
Fabric Origami has been around in the quilting circles for awhile. Fabric Origami is not much different than our childhood favorite of paper origami, and actually most things that you make with paper, you can make with fabric, with a little ingenuity, a needle and thread and an iron.
Below are a few samples of fabric origami quilt squares that I made.
|This is a hexagon shape with a fabric covered button.|
|Different folding technique than above. This is very similar to the little finger puppets that kids make.|
|This flower is made out of beautiful silk fabric and I glued a very unusual button that I found.|
|I used two different techniques of Kanzashi, layered them and put a fabric covered button in the center. I cut the squares large to create a bigger flower.|
|In the center of this I used a glass bead.|
|This flower is made from silk. I had a very unusual mother of pearl flat button and I add a diamond gemstone to the center. I also alternated the front and back of the flower pedals.|
