Overview

Internationally acclaimed quilt and fiber artist Kumiko Sudo translates techniques designed to create extraordinary shapes from paper to a new medium—fabric. Crafters are shown how to effortlessly fold fabric into wonderful new designs, adding dimension and sophistication to any sewing or home decoration project. Patterns for 24 simple yet stylish projects are included for using the flower origami to create such things as exquisite purses, totes, gift boxes, needle cases, and even a cell phone holder. While some of the designs are enhanced with colorful beads, ribbons, or tiny mother-of-pearl, others require no embellishments at all. Clear directions, step-by-step drawings, and full-size templates for every design make it easy for anyone to re-create the projects to perfection with only novice sewing skills.

    Excellent Instructions; Beautiful Work

    I've actually made several of the flowers from this book. The well written and illustrated instructions made it fun. Patterns made it easy. The photos of the authors sample flowers on bags, clothes, and lots of other projects are inspiring. (There are instructions for the projects, too, but I am using the flowers for my own projects, so didn't try those.) I recommend this book for anyone wanting to make some bright, exciting flowered items.
