Use all the same color paper, or various colors, just have fun! You will find the written and pictorial pattern for the Origami Modular Cube below.

Crochet Hook Organizer – or paint brush organizer, Cricut tutorial

I made a crochet hook organizer with some Dress My Craft cardstock and my Cricut. Then I shared the project on Cricut Design Space. I’m posting the instructions here so you can make one of your own. This would also make a great paint brush or marker organizer. It’s actually pretty easy to put together with just a glue runner or some glue dots and some Mod Podge or glue. Add a little thin yarn or crochet thread for a decorative look and to really lock everything in place, then you’re good to go!

Embroidered Messenger Bag Tutorial – A great use for your finished embroidery

| Accessory, Bag, Craft Tutorial, Crafts, Embroidery, Needlepoint, Sewing, Sewing Pattern

This embroidered messenger bag was inspired by the embroidered turtle I made last year from a Global Artisan kit. I knew I needed to make it into something for Vada, because she’s my turtle-loving child. Vada’s in middle school this year, and is getting more social. I thought of making a petite messenger bag for her because it’s a great way to show off the fun little turtle, and she’s not into purses. She loves it, and I hope you do too!
