Fabric Origami Iris

After reading Rhonda's Monday Morning Inspiration today, I had an urge to make an origami iris just like John Galliano did for Dior in 2007. Seeing the iris must have unlocked memories from my childhood; many details of my preschool classroom in Japan suddenly flashed back. (It was like the movie Amelie.) I felt like I was four years old once again, making origami with my friends and two young female teachers in the yellow-themed classroom. Wow.

Here is Dior's iris:
 This is what I made:

I used the cotton canvas from my 'what-was-I-thinking' stash for this experiment. Yes, it turned out quite big :) but I was happy that I still remembered how to make an iris. I will post its process next time.
*UPDATE: You can read about how I made the iris here.

Until then, cheers to you all!
