This is a design by Robert J. Lang from his book – Origami Design Secrets: Mathematical Methods for an Ancient Art – which was released last year. It is an intermediate model and not all that difficult to fold. It is advisable to fold this model from a slightly larger sheet of paper as your first try , before settling down for a small sheet.
In order to get the color changes for the ‘pamper’ of the baby, you should select a duo colored paper, colored a different shade on either side. Since I did not have such a sheet, I chose a single side colored paper.
Paper to use:
You can use kami, Tissue foil or any paper of your choice. Choose a thin paper as there are a lot of folds involved in the middle of the model – for the body of the baby. There are approximately 40 steps or so in the folding sequence.
