9780804847513: Fabrigami: The Origami Art of Folding Cloth to Create Decorative and Useful Objects

Fold decorative origami objects out of cloth with this easy-to-use origami book.

Fabrigami is the Asian 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, but 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 origami 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. Stiffening the fabric requires some practice, but the folds are all easy enough to be considered origami-for-kids projects and are a great way to learn origami.

Cloth origami projects include:

  • Fan-tastic Fold Earrings
  • Evening Wine Coat
  • Florence's Hexagon Box
  • Cloth Kimono Card
  • Pleated Peacock

About the Author:

Jill Stovall has been an educator, librarian, researcher, and writer for many years. Jill's love of origami and her friendship with Florence led her to bring Fabrigami to completion. When she's not sailing her boat across the world, Stovall lives in La Jolla, California.

Currently a student at Yale University, Scott Wasserman Stern has been folding origami since he was three years old. He is the author of Outside the Box Origami.

Florence Temko (1921-2009) was the internationally acclaimed author of over fifty how-to crafts books and a leading authority on origami and kirigami. She was a founding board member of Origami USA, a member of the Authors Guild, and a consultant for the Mingei International Museum.

Review:

"The difference between this book and the traditional origami book is that the projects use stiffened fabric instead of paper. It is definitely more long lasting than using paper, and a great idea for coordinating your home decor!" —JapaneseSewingBooks blog

"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. 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." —PW Daily

"[...] the project collection here is really diverse and interesting. [...] There are 31 projects in all, and many of them would make great stocking-stuffer-type gifties for the holidays. The book itself, of course, is a nice gift for fabric and origami-lovers." —CraftyPod blog

"This craft 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." —Sew Mama Sew blog

"This 80-page book provides project instructions for turning fabric into folded treasures." —Sake Puppets blog
