Origami With an Iron!
This is "Happy Childhood," an Origami Kimono Ornament, of my own original design, made in fine quilting cotton. It is supported by a bamboo dowel, and complete with a gold hanging cord.
It is pictured with a large live azalea for scale.

The fabric's colors: Traditional Lucky Orange, Bubblegum Pink, Turquoise Blue, Yellow, Black, Creamy white, Spring Green, accented by metallic gold.
The fabric's motifs: Stream, River or Water, Butterfly, Fans, Carnations, Irises, Plum Blossoms, mums, Clover, Umbrellas or Parasols, Birds, Toys Drums, Waves, Hills, Kimono Bubbles, Faux Shibori.
The lining color: Turquoise.

Your ornament will have some or all of the above characteristics, depending on how the fabric is cut and folded. It's always a total surprise to me, as each one is impossible to predict.

This listing is for one "Happy Childhood" Origami Kimono Ornament only, and will be fashioned in the same fabric as the first photo, but the placement of the motifs will vary. A good example of this can be seen in the trio and fabric photos.
Ornaments vary from 3 to 3.25 inches wide and 5 to 5.25 inches collar to hem. The gold cord length will vary slightly, as will the bamboo dowel.
The back is nicely finished. In a process that takes more than 30 steps, your ornament was precision sewn by hand and machine, and origamied with an iron. No hot glue guns involved....

Your ornament will come packaged as in the last photo, which shows an Origami Kimono Ornament with an Origami Kimono Pin. Each is mounted on an elegant white linen card and protected by an extra-clear zip bag with a hang hole. More details are on the back, including my contact information.

Suitable for Framing!
Very lightweight, perfect for shipping or slipping into a suitcase to take as a hostess gift.

Artist-designed, artist-made in Portland, Oregon.
