Origami Cranes

Did I say before that I love everything Japanese?? Including origami cranes. I made so many origami cranes for my wedding - they were in all different colours and were scattered on the tables at the reception. I'm not sure what happened to them all at the end of the night - I hope they flew away to somewhere nice and exotic. Two sterling silver cranes have stayed with me though, albeit cruelly trapped on this necklace.

So with the GFC cramping my shopping style, I have decided to use all of the fabric that I have at the moment before buying any more. I know I am kidding myself, but it has started off well as I found an obi that was just beautiful underneath piles of material. I bought it years ago at the Valley markets in Brisbane. I've never really been game to unpick it or worse yet cut it, but I think not having purchased anything in a while muddled my brain and so I just hoed into it. Luckily it turned out well in the form of a bolero top, which I am in total love with now!
