With a little help from my friends...

This is the famous Beatles song.
I am very happy with my friends, so title my post so.
One month ago  I received two lovely pieces of fabrics from Elnora.
They are newspapers prints on fabric in red and black version.

I like them very much and began thinking what pattern to create.
I was inspired by painting of another friend of mine.

I remember my childhood when had making newspaper boats and put them on water for sailing.
We were so happy! We didn't know they are called Origami.
But now I know definitely  - I will  make an Origami boat pattern!
Here it is.
I folded a real boat from double side color paper with printed text on it.
Like in a real model I followed the orientation of the text.


  1. Oh, that's so cute, Rumi! Lovely translation of a classic childhood project.

  2. Thank you for everything! :)

  3. I love the way you used the text fabric on this - it's so fantastic!

    1. It is as in a real boat. I wondered which side to choose. Probably I will design the other side, too :)
