    Hi ladies. I discovered the origami block navigation sticker on the web here. I tried to make some and these are what I have done.
    I am planing to make a small bag with them, if you have anyidea to d with them, please give me any suggestion.
    The each block measures 2 1/2"squares.

    ohhh, it is so beautiful, Izy.
    I used a navigtion kit like sitcker to fold each block, so each block ends up with the same size and was way easy to fold.

    Oh that sounds much easier, you can see mine is not anywhere as neat as yours :roll:

    You just took a couple of tiny stitches were two edges met, it was quite difficult to hold and stitch if I remember.............. :lol:

    Beautiful!! I have a book on the origami blocks, but it's highly unlikely I'll ever make one. LOL But yours and Izy's are beautiful.

    Wow... they're stunning! And my first thought would be a bag too.

    They'd be a gorgeous wall hanging too, being three dimensional. :-)

    Panda these are beautiful (yours too Izy!). I think they would look cute appliquéd onto a background square in rows as a wall hanging - OR - how about as a border spaced around a central medallion of appliqué or piecing or something lovely that you can make? :D

    That is a good idea, K3n. I will go get the flower button at the center.
    Thanks.

    :D Nice! They kind of look like our Yo Yos that can be different sizes and are round or heart or flower shapes. I sed some of those on my May banner for the flower blossoms. My grandmother used to sew Yo Yos by the hour, by hand. she sewed them together and was going to make a quilt. Yours would look nice sewn together too into anything - a table mat or purse or decoration on anything. Google YoYos and see some ideas.

    Where did you get the pattern? I might like to make some like yours.

    Both of your blocks are very pretty!!! I can't wait to see what you end up doing with them :D :D :D
    I have the Quiltagami book too, I played with a couple of the blocks. I starched the fabrics pretty heavily and pressed after each fold and that seemed to help some :wink: It is on my list as a wall hanging some day
