weaving palm fish tutorial

RUKUFAN ORIGAMI: FISH 2

Ah! the saga continues. It’s taken me a while to figure out how to make another one of these things, but then again I haven’t really had much time of late to be…fiddling. (hah! liar)

Anyway here is an alternate version of a fish made out of Rukufan/Palm fronds. I believe that this version is the more historically common variant in the Maldives. So let’s call it the “Maldivian version” or something hehe.

Click on the images for larger views. It might take a little while to load all the images, so please be patient.

let us proceed!

1) you will need one palm leaf, with the midrib removed, or two pieces of ribbon if you like that.

2) Tie a knot in the middle, just a simple knot. Notice how the shiny surfaces face away from each other. This is important if you want consistency in the final output. Tighten the knot.

3) Notice that on each side, the knot consists of a section of strip that goes all the way across (let’s call it section A), and one that gets tucked under section A (call it section B). We will be working with the loose hanging strips coming from under section B. Take the upper strip, and fold it OVER Section A…

4) …and tuck it under there. Tighten it up!

5) flip the fish over, and repeats steps 3 and 4 for this side. You should now have something that looks like this…

6) Good. We’re almost there. We’re still working with the same two ends we were just playing with. Take one, and twist that over to the other side from where it is, and tuck it under the crossing strip there. Repeat for the other one on the other side.

and Voila!

All you gotta do now is trim up those fins and you got yourself a fish! Here is what a finished fish may look like. Ideally this is done with a younger leaf. Notice Venus the guitar down there on the left, and the the DIY guitar stand she’s sitting on.
