Ven loves this technique and it's his signature although he's going to auf himself from the show if he does it again.

However, anyone have an idea how this is done? I'm too impatient to go and start trying to fold fabric, and can't figure out if it's stitched down anywhere.

Fabrigami was the word invented for it by Laura Bennett from her blog, just nailed it.

I like it too. I'm thinking that it's something that could be found in a quilting book.

In card making it is called Iris Folding. I've done it once, and if I remember correctly you work from the back and from the outer most area to the centre. I don't know if this is the method he used, but that at least is a reference point.

Link to some iris folding info

Here it is done in fabric.. Fabric iris folding.

Thanks for the links Connie! If that's how Ven is doing it, I have to say I'm not as impressed with the technique as I thought I might be....it's simply not that complex looking.

.....she says before she attempts it..... (meaning, I may have to eat my words once I actually try it!)

Connie you're amazing! Now I'm wondering if the reason why they don't show Ven making it is because he's a hot glue mess?

I found some other origami things of how to make a rose, it's possible he's gluing that in the centre.

I totally agree.... I am not as impressed with it now that I have seen that. Even if it is harder to do than it looks, it makes me think that Ven picked up the technique off some craft site, not that he came up with it himself in any way. Ven needs to go home soon, lol.

I think the sample would look much better if it had been properly pressed. The fact that the garment was made out of one fabric makes a difference too.

I have to say Ven DEFINITELY needs to go! He's a decent seamstress with one trick up his sleeve and not much creativity. Plus, as a couple of past shows have shown, he's a total ASS!

I like Christopher, Dmitry, Fabio, Sonjia and Melissa? (the blonde).

Connie, thanks for posting that link. For several weeks I've been trying to tell my friends that Ven did NOT invent that technique-- quilters and crafters have been doing it for years!!!
