Lee-Kuo saw his mum’s paper dogs and decided to design his own system for paper weaving a dog. He found pictures of a dog on the internet and created the proportions in 3D. He then began weaving using his 3D model as a guide. This is his finished paper woven dog.

We had a few magazines lying around and my wife decided to have a go at paper weaving. These are the results and I think they are really amazing. The handbag gets lots of attention and many people would like to buy one. The dogs are also really incredible, which shows that this system of weaving lends itself to almost any shape.

I have been folding paper since I was a little boy. Today I still love folding those wonderful boats, boxes, birds and anything that can be used for teaching English. All my kindergarten students become experts in origami by the time they go to elementary school. Here are just a few that were lying around the house. Until the next post, keep folding.

Crochet poodle

This is another one of those cute cuddly dogs found in a Japanese crochet book. Originally Lee-Kuo began making it but couldn’t find his place in the crochet because of the special yarn so he just made the body and head. Eventually my wife completed the special yarn and it looks great.

This is one of those beautiful works of art that my wife is so good at sewing. It is fully padded and lined inside which gives it that added quality feel. My son wanted to use it for school but his first one got stolen so now it stands on our cassette stand.

Cutie dog

Here is another lovely piece of crochet made by my son. He is 12 years old and really enjoys being creative with his hands. We have lots of crochet books from Japan, we can’t read them but my son knows how to read the crochet patterns, and so he wanted to make this one. It really does look cute.
