Fat Quarterly Issue 7 is out now! All about colour palettes and where to find help in choosing colours for your projects.


Amelie has been folding and twisting every piece of paper that she comes across. So we attempted a simple bit of origami from this Japanese book.


All the origami are very simple and aimed at children.

Still a bit beyond Amelie so we only used the computer paper I had to hand but she gets the rough idea and is more than keen to help Mummy fold the paper. So next time I will find some brightly coloured paper to use.

Amelie not only helped fold the paper but also drew the faces on afterwards. I tried to explain to her what we were doing was called origami to which she replied "No Mummy, it's Mummy-gami"
