Here’s my first DIY of the year for the Laura Ashley blog made out of their Freshford pattern, an updated pattern from their archives. I envisioned using it some way that would take advantage of the stiffer material and I found that it was perfect for keeping the shape of an origami project. I think some of the best projects are those that are super simple and quick to make, which is why I was thrilled when this origami tote bag worked out. I had seen it done out of paper on a mini scale before but not out of fabric and at such a large scale like this. There’s even an option to do a no-sew version below.
