My Mom Got Me Into It.

This is actually quite fun. I like making my own designs and patterns. They make great Christmas ornaments, and you can even make some nifty three-dimensional items with layers of patterns. My favourite one was a 3-D grand piano that I made for my mom.

HOWEVAH!... It *can* get rather old if you do it for too long, which is usually the case with my mom. She LOVES these, way more than me.
