Cut two 12" by 13" pieces of outer and lining fabrics. Cut two 2" pieces of ribbon (I used grosgrain), fold in half and pin one inch from the bottom corners with the raw edges of the ribbon against the raw edges of the fabric.

Alternately the individual components may be glued together. (e.g. the kusudama in the lower photo is entirely glued, not threaded together) Occasionally, a tassel is attached to the bottom for decoration.

IKEA Poang Chair Slipcover The IKEA Poang Chair is a very popular staple in many budget savvy homes — but it only comes in a few colors and patterns, white being the only one that would work in the baby’s room. We all know white won’t last long, and I wanted a chair that would POP, so I decided to attempt to make a cover for the Poang cushion that would do the baby’s room some justice. Plain, Boring Ikea Poang Chair You know these chairs – you’ve seen them, and you may even own one! We opted for one of these guys over a rocker (saving us hundreds of dollars) when we were decorating Logan’s room, and it turned out to be a great purchase. Logan is 2 now, and we still use the chair every night for story time, and he likes to climb up and sit and read by himself as well.
Origami Box I came across a tutorial for this origami box yesterday and couldn’t resist folding it immediately! It’s not like any other box I’ve folded before, it appears to be a rectangular box from outside but when you open it up there is another box inside – a square one!
