A Remake - Little Turtle Kusudama

One of my favourite modular origami is Tomoko Fuse’s Little Turtle Kusudama. I had made them a couple of years back, using beautiful, vibrant paper. I had a workshop coming up and wanted to remake this model, since my previous kusudamas have been distributed long back!

Well, after a long time I worked on some modular origami – the origami football (soccerball). Absence really does make the heart grow fonder, cos I absolutely loved making the football.

The paper was thicker than the paper from my last attempt. So making the reeds and making the discs were quite painful. Took quite a toll on my fingers!
