Fabrigami

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

Fabrigami is the art of folding fabrics to create three-dimensional objects ranging from the practical to the whimsical. Like paper, there are countless beautiful fabric designs to choose from, only fabric has the virtue of being extremely durable.

Fabrigami began as origami legend Florence Temko's final project. Everyone knows that origami is the art of paper folding, but Temko had begun experimenting with folding fabric to make objects that are just as beautiful but more lasting than paper. Sadly, Temko passed away before the book was completed, but her collaborator, Jill Stovall, continued their work. Now, Stovall—with the help of Scott Stern, a rising young star of origami—brings Fabrigami to print for everyone to use and enjoy.

This book begins by presenting instructions on how to treat fabric so it holds a shape when folded. Then Stovall shares a series of fun craft projects with simple origami-style diagrams that you can use to make a range of lovely objects, including:
  • Fan-tastic Fold Earrings
  • Evening Wine Coat
  • Florence's Hexagon Box
  • Cloth Kimono Card
  • Pleated Peacock
