V and Co. Book Page Corner Heart Origami Bookmark This is another heart tutorial. Is the 'book page' trend over yet? I sure hope not, because I just love the look of this corner bookmark folded from a book page. The great thing about origami is that it is cheap and anyone can do it - with the proper instructions. When I was a kid, my parents bought me an origami book (from Thailand, all in Thai!). I was so excited to get it until I started to attempt to make the figures. I still see origami instructions out there that completely confuse me. I used a book page for this but origami paper would make awesome book marks also. 3D paper diamonds Hello there. Hope you all had a great Easter! We had a lovely relaxing holiday (….well as relaxing as it gets with kids). It would have been great to have another week off ^_^ Before I forget I just want to say a big thank you for all the kind messages you have send me regarding my book (you really are a nice bunch!) I’ve been meaning to get this paper diamond up for weeks now…but it’s taken ages to figure the template out (and I’ve been having breaks between each failed attempt). It’s based on simplified version of Satoshi Kamiya’s origami diamond. These paper diamonds are tricky to make (& require a fair bit of patience) so definitely adults only! When you have made your diamonds you can attach thread and hang them up. How-to 1. 2. 3. 4. Happy Monday all! Edited to add: A few people have had problems printing the templates (the dotted lines do not print).
Holder for Charging Cell Phone (made from lotion bottle) My husband and I both have cell phones. And both of us have phone chargers. And that means lots of obnoxious cords. You never know when one of us may be moving phone cords around, to give our phones an extra charge while we’re chatting away……… or trying to charge our phones up before running errands or something. Needless to say, those phone cords seem to be everywhere…..and are generally in the way and hanging all over the floor. (Okay, and how about when you’re in a hotel or visiting family/friends. I was looking around on the internet for a solution and found this. It made the perfect little holder for my cell phone while it’s being charged. Holder for Charging Cell Phone And no more phone hanging down from the outlet while in this room or that room……..the cord and phone are now up off the ground, and tucked away into the little holder, while the phone drinks up a full charge. If you look closely, you can see that the orange print is fabric. And turns out, it’s pretty useful.

For the contrast bottom style pouches, simply cut two pieces of each measurement listed in the chart by the width of the pouch, and sew together using a 1/2" seam allowance.

DIY Kimono Jacket + Hood Recently, my housemate gave me some lovely mustard fabric… and this project emerged from it! Regrettably I did not document the steps that led to the finished product. This was partially due to the fact that I was very unsure about the end result mixed with the overwhelming excitement to start the project when I arrived home with the flannel lining. I have however, documented the steps via drawings and photos I took post project for your benefit. I hope you can understand them. Tools: Outer Fabric – 2 metres to 3 metres Lining Fabric – 2 Metres to 3 Metres Sewing Machine Overlocker (optional) – I finished my se ams with an overlocker, but it is not necessary #Note: Amount of fabric will depend on your measurements and desired outcome Tutorial: I created an extremely basic pattern based on my own measurements which means that it is quite simple for you to create your own! This is how I created the general jacket shape. I then created a sash/belt and sewed it to the back of the jacket. LOve <3 Yin
