    Petal Sandals

    We’re total suckers for embellished shoes, and because this craft doesn’t include any potentially tacky textures (we’re talking about you, puffy paint) it’s virtually impossible to get it wrong.

    Zipper Sweater

    When in doubt, put a zipper on it! We adore this project because it reinvents an old knit that would have inevitably ended up at the Salvation Army. Talk about a comeback, eh?
