Book folding is an arts and crafts technique where you measure, cut and fold the pages in a book to make an image that is based on a black and white silhouette. I was introduced to book folding by my mother. When she asked me if I thought I could create some silhouettes to create new patterns that people had asked her about but there were no patterns available that matched what they wanted. I’ve picked up a couple of programs that are used to create these patterns and these are the final results of some of the patterns I’ve created.
This was the first patterns that I made for my mom’s book folding projects. Once I picked up the program I needed to create patterns for book folding risking my first project on something that someone was paying for seemed too risky. As a bit of a joke since my mom had already created two other Jesus patterns that she bought the pattern for I decided why not make the Buddy Christ image from Dogma? it turned out much better than I anticipated but none of my mom’s religious friends would ever want it, unfortunately.
The inspiration for the book pattern.
