Did you know that your wooden crochet hooks and knitting needles need a little TLC now and then? Wood does start to dry out after a while, and the finish/waxing can wear off with use. You can also make old hooks and needles seem new again, and those of lesser quality seem of higher quality.

The Easy Origami Cup Tutorial will be your best friend at your next party. It can work as a snack cup, be filled for a goodie bag, and if lined with wax paper will even work as a drink cup. Change up the size of your starting square to change the size of your origami cup.

Easy Origami Cup Tutorial from Jessie At Home

In the Easy Origami Cup Tutorial you will see both sides of the origami paper. Therefor it’s a nice idea to use paper that is a different color or pattern on both sides. Be sure to crease well after each fold.

Origami Butterfly – These would make a great addition to a hand made mobile!

| Crafts, Origami, Origami Pattern

Isn’t this Origami Butterfly pretty? Imagine if you made it with a patterned paper. They can be stuck on walls, added to collages, placed on plants, or even put on a wire and added into a floral arrangement. Think of all the possibilities!

Origami Butterfly tutorial from Jessie At Home

Only one side of the paper is seen on the finished Origami Butterfly, so the color of the back of the paper does not matter. Be sure to crease well after each fold.

Happy Sunday! It seems like a good day to catch you up on the various goings-on here At Home lately. I doubt I’ll do this every Sunday, but I’ll try to do it once or twice a month. Yesterday was the girls’ first day of Spring Break and this morning we opened windows. Cabin fever is finally ending!

Snag Repair Needles from Clover – or how to repair your winter coat after a harrowing attack

| Crafts, Crochet, Knit, Review, Sewing

This post may contain affiliate links. If you purchase something from one of these links I will be compensated. Thank you.

I bought myself a brand new winter coat at the beginning of this winter. Shortly thereafter I was out and about, minding my own business, when I was viciously attacked by a prickly bush (it was an attack prickly bush, I certainly didn’t walk into the bush on my own because I’m a klutz). My beautiful new coat was snagged in several places and I was so sad!

p.s. stick around for a giveaway
