I haven’t really had a chance to do much that would help me relax, ever since I finished my glitter court shoes and flats, I’ve been raring to go and start a new project. I’ve got my material to start making my jersey midi skirt, but first I need to clear space in my room to start cutting out my fabric.
Another project that my friend mentioned that really caught my attention was her intentions to decorate her flat with fairy lights. They were going to be adorned with origami lillies – stargazer/Oriental pink lillies are my favourite flower, but with the kitties we can’t have them in the house because they are highly dangerous/poisonous to them. So when she told me about her origami lillies idea, I had a lightbulb appearing above my head that would allow me to have lillies in the house which would also be safe for the kitties.
Materials for my origami lillies
We’ve already arranged to meet up next week to have an origami session which I’m really excited about. I’ll post a photo of what I plan to do with my origami lillies when I get them done. I used to fold origami cranes because it was all the rage in primary school, then came the craze of folding lucky stars and we used to fold them after school all the time, enough of them (the instructions called for 100) to fill a glass jar.
In the meantime, if you’d like to make your own lillies, you can follow these instructions from Origami-Instructions.com
