Shadowfolds: Surprisingly Easy-To-Make Geometric Designs in Fabric
By Jeffrey Rutzky and Chris K. Palmer.
This book shows that creative folding is not just confined to paper. Shadowfolds introduces this unique craft, created by folding cloth in patterns based on classic geometric designs. The patterns, influenced by historic architecture and the traditional decorations of many cultures, have a layered complexity due to their interaction with light. The completed designs have one look when they are opaque and a very different appearance when lit from behind. Use the simple, easy-to-follow instructions to make 15 different projects, from a pillow to a purse, from a tablecloth to a hat. The projects are fun and fashionable and will inspire you to come up with your own patterns and applications. Hardbound: 128 pp.
