Just in time for Sunday

Fathers Day is always a slightly bitter-sweet occasion around here, since it always happens around the anniversary of a fateful phone call nine years ago.

So, sadly, I don’t send a Father’s Day card myself but remember happy days and count my blessings instead.

This year, I was asked to think up a simple idea for a Father’s Day card and prompted by our travels earlier in the year, I thought I’d look out a simple pattern for an origami shirt, similar to this one given to me in Hiroshima by the young man in the tourist office.

Here’s my version, adapted from a pattern in one of my origami books.  It’s easy to fold and the thin origami paper not only makes it easier to get crisp folds, the white reverse side gives a neat contrast trim too!
