North Clarendon, VT (PRWEB) November 12, 2013
Tuttle Publishing has announced the release of its newest origami title, Fabrigami. 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.
Author Jill Stovall developed this distinctive technique working with the late Florence Temko, one of the origami world’s greatest icons. Along with the help of illustrator and origami artist Scott Stern, Stovall brings Temko’s last work to print for everyone to use and enjoy.
This book presents instructions on how to treat fabric so it holds a shape when folded as well as a series of fun craft projects with simple origami-style diagrams including:
- Fan-tastic Fold Earrings
- Evening Wine Coat
- Florence's Hexagon Box
- Cloth Kimono Card
- Cloth Couture High Heeled Shoe
- Pleated Peacock
Origami is known to be the art of paper folding. The Fabrigami technique allows readers to make objects that are just as beautiful but longer lasting. Completed projects make great keepsakes and gifts for friends and family for the holiday season. Fabrigami is now available everywhere books are sold including online at Tuttle Publishing and Amazon.
