Nerd Alert： I have had a love affair with origami for 22 years. I have boxes filled with random folded creatures， I had origami cranes on my wedding invitations and 1，000 folded cranes at my reception. I have at least 10 origami books and boxes (sigh) of origami paper which I would roll around in naked were it not for the wrinkling (that’；s how much I love it) so I was happy to have come up with this little project as a way to display a few pieces in baby’；s room. It seems so obviouspersonalized christmas ornaments， has anyone seen it done before？

What you need：

？ Instructions for origami butterfly. I used this book and highly recommend it if you have some folding experience. Otherwise here is a link to many butterfly instructions.
？ Origami paper (the paper I used was 2 sided.) You could also use plain white for a more modern look.
？ Clean recycled cardboard
？ Background paper (this was from a recycled calendar. love it!)
？ Spray Paint (optional)
？ Double-stick tape
？ Plastic ball stick pins
？ Box cutter
？ Straight edge
？ Cutting mat
1. Disassemble frame and， in a well ventilated area， spray paint your frame (if desired.) Leave to dry.
2. Trace the back insert of your frame on to your background paper， tape to cardboard (or Xyron) and trim both together using your box cutter and straight edge.
3. Fold your butterflies as directed.
4. Double stick the butterflies in position on the background
5. Stick a pin through each abdomen
6. Reassemble frame
7. Add your creation to a tchotchke shelf filled with hipster baby loot. ： )
It’s almost springtime! When it’s spring, I love to find a new tote bag to feel festive. Somehow they always look cute and come in so many perfect sizes. Since I am always looking for a new project, I thought that perhaps I’d make something for ME. ??I started sewing a year ago. Since then, I’ve enjoyed learning how to sew items for my babies, home, and gifts for friends. A cute tote bag would be the perfect thing to try next! Yes, that is right, this Mama is making something for herself.
Thanks for joining us on for Indygo Junction’s SoHo Bandana blog tour! We’re excited to be part of the tour and join them in their National Sewing Month celebration. Have you seen Amy Barickman’s new SoHo Bandana fabric line? It’s so cool! With more guys than gals on my holiday gift-sewing list, it’s awesome to have a new?fabric that isn’t too “girly”?– this collection is great for humbug bags, mug rugs, and quilts. Guest blogger Betsy Blodgett from Indygo Junction?is here to show some of the awesome projects they’ve made using SoHo Bandana, and tell us about a big give-away they’re having at the end of the month (tomorrow, actually!).

In the dining room Eddie Ross designed for our Summer 2016 catalog, he combined Suzanne Kasler’s peony pink linen drapery panels with our limegreen tape trim. This designer detail feels custom and elevates the entire room, and it’s such an easy change you can make to your panels. We’re showing you how!
