Steven Casey - Rabbit : difficulty while folding

Post by nemoth3nomad »

Hello,
I am following the instructions as in http://origami-art.us/instructions/168-rabbit-casey
And I think I am making some mistake somewhere. My model looks exactly like as in instruction up to step 27 (it has 3 flaps to the right). But after the "Elias Stretch", in step 28, I have to flaps on the right. As I pull the far-side and near-side flaps to the left, the central of the 3 previous flaps collapses. So, after the valley fold is step 28, in step 29, I have only 2 flaps to the right. I kept on working, but then I do not have the far-side ear :(
Please help!

After 26, you should have five small flaps on the right side if you did 23-26 correctly. Then, when you Elias-stretch on each side in 27, the second and fourth flaps get collapsed into the model, leaving you with three flaps that are twice as long as the original five.
I hope this helps. :)
After the fall, we rise.
