Topic: Fabric Stuff
I went trolling on the internet for some 'fabric gift ideas' and found an origami bin to make. Unfortunately, there were NO written instructions, just pictures. Some of the steps looked a lot like teabag folding which I have done a lot of so I decided to give it a try.
I chose some fabric I got at a recent yard sale and one from the stash that went well with it. I used these together in a quilt top not too long ago (but haven't shown it because it is not done.)
There is an iron-on stabilizer on the back of the patterned fabric and both pieces start at 17 1/2 inches. They are sewn fronts together and then turned right-side-out.
After that it is all origami folding followed by stitching the upper rim flaps down.
It finishes at about 7 inches square.
This would be good for catching scraps at the sewing machine or while hand-sewing.
When done, the whole thing folds flat.
Pretty cool, huh?
