Tropical Fishie Origami Purse

November 2004

Details: This tropical fishy fabric never seems to get used up! This incarnation was used for the outside of the purse. The inside was made from luscious two-tone, purple/blue taffeta.

The drawstring is a light blue cording with hand-made fobs at the ends. :-)

This purse has 3 sections: a center, inner compartment, flanked by outer pockets formed by the "origami" part of the purse ... the fabric is folded on top of itself.

I made a second one in moose fabric in January 2008.

This pattern can be found at East Wind Art and is called "Origami bag encore".
