Philomeena Crease Pattern and Notes by Cahoonas Philomeena Crease Pattern and Notes by Cahoonas
Crease pattern for an origami Philomeena [link]

I am posting this crease pattern notes for my own records; I don't plan on diagramming this model anytime soon as I still can't fold it the same way twice =/. However, feel free to try making this from the notes I've provided.

edit: some additional notes for starting the base: [link]

The crease pattern collapsed as shown actually has a unfinished tail. In order to slim the tail, the feathers at the tip of each wing need to be spread first. My methodology involved working my way halfway down the wing, then thinning the tail, and then having the creases meet at the wing/body junction (as shown in the picture notes).

Where does one start with crease patterns?? I'm lost just looking at it.

Admittedly this one may be a bit more on the confusing side. For crease patterns, it's about finding reference points. If you can find the reference points, you can connect them to make the corresponding creases on the crease pattern. For example, the two diagonals that run from corner to corner are easy; most crease patterns usually divide the paper in half either corner to corner or down the middle. From there, the two squares in the lower left, upper right are about a quarter the length of the paper. Fold diagonals, bisect angles, etc. Once the creases are made, there usually only a few ways they can collapse; just start with with the parts you are pretty sure is collapsed correctly and work from there. However if you're new to crease patterns, you could check out some of the resources in the crease patterns section of this FAQ: www.reddit.com/r/origami/wiki/…

It'll become cleaner with practice! I probably ended up making this a dozen times before I was willing to try with decent paper.

Considering some of this ended up being guesswork, good luck!

Hehe... Well it started that the crease pattern is kinda hard to fold, but I'm still trying to crease every single line. Can you tell me where to start first? I'm not still that good of a origami artist.
Thanks for replying me!

Well I guess the only hard creases were the head and the body, wings are pretty easy, I just need the to fold the top left crease correct and the base can collapse.

Nice, you made progress! The neck thinning steps don't need to be exact, you just need to be able reverse the color for the head. I ended up thinning the neck differently each time so whatever looks nice will work.

I finished, the hardest part is probably spreading the feathers, and the detail. I'm still not good at detailing origami. But, I did it! Your edit is very helpful. I have one more thing, I know you and Cyberglass made the origami pony, and I wonder can you show me how you detailed? (hoof/leg/head) Thanks a lot, Cahoonas!

For the pony, have you tried collapsing that crease pattern yet? It'll take pretty large paper or else it'll be pretty packed with layers

Front leg: assuming you got it to point down, I folded it up, then down, and then just narrowed the leg.
Back leg: I did mine differently from cyberglass; I prefer to have the joint on the leg (that sticks out) higher up on the leg, which ended up using more paper and making the leg shorter/stubbier (kinda like a filly)
Head: Just use my head detailing guide near the beginning of my mlp gallery. I'll admit, getting the top left section of the crease pattern(the head area) to squash correctly(and flat) is tricky and is why I didn't collapse it immediately in my twilight sparkle base. Try fiddling around with tucking that "hat" flap away to let you flatten the head.

Yea, I collapsed. But, I only use a original paper to do it. :< Thanks! I'll try the detail.
