Dreamer, in this post, we will show you a step-by-step idea to make a hearts decoration with origami on fabric.
It’s a straightforward project requiring no sewing, and you can use those fabric remnants that always are kept.
Prepare your fabrics, iron, and get to work!
- Fabric scraps (we recommend cotton fabrics with the print of your choice).
- Wonder tape
- Laces, calculate 20-40 in for each square.
- Scissors and rotary cutter
- Cutting surface
- Finger presser
Mark and cut squares on the fabric scraps; it doesn’t matter if they have different sizes.
- But we recommend that the smallest is 15 cm so you can manipulate the fabric easier.
Preheat your iron to the appropriate temperature for the fabric you are working with.
To iron the fabric squares and fold them in half, marking the fold in the center.
Work all the folds on an ironing board and iron each fold to help you mark and maintain the shape of the fabric.
Place the fabric’s back side facing up. Match the top edge of the square with the center line and mark the fold.
Turn the piece right side up and fold the top corners to the center.
Fold the top cornerback to match it with the center of the bottom edge.
Go back to the front and place two small rectangles. Lift the bottom corner, put your finger inside the fold, and open it to form a triangle in front.
- Repeat on the other rectangle.
Fold the outside edges down to form small triangles at the top and unfold the piece by pulling the bottom edge up.
Remember to iron each fold; you can use the finger presser to iron small areas to avoid burning.
Fold the top two corners to the centerline. Then, pull the left and right corners inward.
Fold the piece in half, matching the top and bottom corners. And place it inside the small pocket.
You have finished the heart!
- Repeat the procedure with all the squares you cut.
Now, place a section of wonder tape in the back center of each heart, and then add the laces of your choice.
Place them on your door, window, or wall and add a cute DIY detail.
