Well I am too stumped to continue with the pillow project. Every time I pick up the idea in my head and turn it around a few times to see if I can go further...I can't. For some reason I can't get the idea of incorporating solid colors out of my head...alas, I have none that match my patterns, so I'm back to being stumped. I think I may be forced to just make something to tide me over because we really do need pillows on the couch!
On the upswing, I've come up with a design for a pillow in my office, so I'll be stitching that together soon, hooray! It's going to be pretty darn cute, so I can't wait to get it done!
In the meantime, check out these origami bows from Tweety Atelier (via Zakkalife). How adorable are they?! This blog is published in some kind of Asian language and seems to be completely flash-based, so unfortunately I can't point you toward direct links for the project. However, it's not too hard to poke around and see all the crazy paper projects she's done!
I also wanted to show another one of her great projects for repurposing those large masking tape rolls. She turned them into little containers and a pin cushion; how clever is that?
What about you? Are you an origami person? I seem to have success with simple designs, so maybe I'll be able to pull off this bow...?
