Lutradur Lanterns by Carolyn Sinclair
These delightful (and very impressive!) orbs were created by Carolyn Sinclair. She was inspired to make them after seeing a tutorial on how to make paper versions on a site called ‘Creative in Chicago‘.
The idea of turning a flat object into a 3-dimensional structure really appealed to her and, as a regular write for Bernina, they became her chosen project for the 15th December issue of Bernina’s blog.
Carolyn used Lutradur 30gsm to make the lanterns as, not only is it beautifully translucent, but it also has a certain stiffness, making it an ideal fabric for creating lightweight sculpture.
