1/4" birch ply flat waxed cord size 150D/0.8mm
Shaper Origin Scissors Leather stitching needle 1/8" bit
1. cut 12 faces with an 1/8" bit 2. clean up any rough edges 3. Sew it together. The sewing part is pretty difficult as the shape comes together. I recommend sewing each corner such that it has all 3 connections stitched on both the inside and the outside. I travelled between corners with a stitch on the inside. My eventual plan is to cut 11 faces from a semitransparent material and then stitch that together and use it as a lamp with either the missing face open to the bottom for a desk lamp or the top for a hanging lamp. It will be easier to stitch with one missing face and you can then pull the stitches tighter which will cause it to flex less once assembled. I plan to update this project once the final version is complete!
