004- Origami bag
Open Source - Zero Waste - Digital Sewing kit
Lined hand bag made out of Origami folding technique.
This pattern is not conventional.
It was designed in 2018 by Mylène L'Orguilloux @milan_avjc with the first intention to provide alternatives for home sewers to better optimize fabric consumption and reduce the waste usually produced when cutting a garment. It therefore results in a rectangle jigsaw-like pattern where all the pieces fit together without producing any fabric scraps.
This sewing pattern is suitable for beginner sewers and above.
It comes with a sew-along video recorded in English with auto-subtitles.
