Well, I am very chuffed! If you go to this page, you will find that the clever origami designer mentioned below has kindly posted step-by-step directions with photographs. The clever origami wallet can be made in about ten minutes by a complete tyro. And let me just tell you, for future reference, that when folding origami from patterns covered with red and blue lines, you do not simply start at the upper left and work your way across and down the page as though reading. In fairness, it must be said that Pokey was able to figure it out on her own.

wish I knew origami better…
Well, you need to remember that every craft has its mysteries. I saw these cool sandals on boing boing, crocheted from shopping bags, and I thought I’d look at the directions. They appear to be written in some bizarre mixture of English and Coptic and no gnostic flash of knowledge occurs when I meditate upon them. I’m guessing that it’s clear as anything to one brought up to the tongue, but it remains Jargonese to the rest of the world. Origami is the same way.
