Fabrigami: The Origami Art of Folding Cloth to Create Decorative and Useful Objects

Jill Stovall, Scott Stern, and Florence Temko. Tuttle, $15.95 paper (80p) ISBN 978-4-8053-1256-8
In Japanese, "ori" means fold and "gami," paper. The authors craft a new word for the use of fabric as a take on the classic Japanese art of folding paper into delicate shapes. Stovall and Stern, mentored in the art by the late Temko, author of more than 50 DIY craft guides, take the reader from plain fabric to 3D gift with complete instructions from stiffening to making the final folds. While the fabrigami process may appear labor intensive and impractical, "…more and more," says Stern, "I see how the beauty of the fabric is what really accentuates these folded creations." Once fabric is procured, a long walk up "ori" hill is yet to come, beginning with the basics of mountain folds, valley folds, kite folds, and all their kin. With the right fabric of interest, it could be worth the labor to produce a billfold for a dear friend or the classic origami bird of peace for the Yule tree. Details for 31 projects are included.
