The Origami Lotus Bag Tutorial | Exchanging Fire My favorite project bag is this lotus-shaped drawstring bag I own. It’s square with some design features that reminds me of Japanese origami, the beautiful art of paper folding. I love the way it folds in on itself like those old fortune teller paper games we used to play in school when we were children. The design is both simple yet clever. Pulling the drawstring shuts the bag and creates handles for carrying, all without losing its basic shape. I knew this bag design would be perfect for the vintage fabric my grandmother bought while traveling in India in the ’70s, but when I looked around the Internet in an attempt to make it, I couldn’t find a pattern or tutorial for the design I liked anywhere.

Second, iron your fabric so that it’s easier to work with. Now we’re getting to the folding. The Lotus Temple Bag

Macaron Coin Purse Just can’t help for not sewing these sweet little macaron coin purses when one of Craft Passion’s Facebook fans showed them to me. Thanks to XYZZhandmade for her inspiring handmade and some tutorial links in Japanese, this, this, this and this. No, I can’t read Japanese but I can guess from the pictures on how to sew it. Here is the English version of tutorial on how to sew this macaron coin purse where I have added more details in the sewing. The space inside the coin purse is quite limited but good enough to place some small jewelries like ear rings, rings; may be to keep some small coins, folded money; a place to keep small piece of note that wrote your shopping list and reminder etc. I have tried both nylon and metal zipper, each gave different feel and effect on the macaron coin purse.

How to make 3D paper ball ornaments I love 3D paper things. Love. And when I saw a little picture of what appeared to be paper balls in a CB2 catalog, I thought, "I am going to make those." So the other day while Alex was writing a paper about mysterious things like polymers and flexible films and tactoids, I made a paper ball. Then I proudly announced I had created a tactoid and it was sitting on my desk. He giggled. These are made from 12 slotted flower shapes that fit together to form a sphere.

Scissors or Rotary CutterI highly recommend the rotary cutter.

These are tiny boxes with vintage style Christmas wrapping paper. Cut them out, put them together following the instructions, and let your creativity run wild. Use them as decorative accents on packages. Pop-Open Little Purse! Today, I have a very cute little low sew project to show off! A friend of mine showed this to me and now I'm totally mad about it! It's so fun, cheap and easy to do and the result is cute and useful !!! Loooooooooooove it! Jojo had been complaining about her coin purse is spoilt and asking for a new one..and this "Pop" purse just came in handy! Now, let's get started :- Get a stiff cardboard (I recycled an old mushroom packing box) and cut a shape like the picture ... or you can be creative about the shape after this tutorial... The cardboard has to be stiff and flexible enough for a nice curve bend when you pressed it this way and still be able to return to the straight flat position when released. You need to cut 3 pieces of the cardboard - exactly the same shape and size. Wrap a piece of rag / clothes... (felt would be a good choice but I don't have any and it's very expensive here..) You may secure the edge with double side tape, glue gun, anything that you consider friendly enough to handle. now
