I love to make things and I especially love to mix it up craft wise—so this totally unique and totally stylish scrapbook cover caught my eye. By simply combining paper arts, fabric, and a huge selection of fab embellishments you can transform any three ring binder into the perfect handmade gift or styling scrapbook to keep your memories.

I can't think of anything cuter and easier to stitch up than a perky cocktail apron a la Lucille Ball. It makes a great accessory for entertaining (what a conversation starter!) or the perfect unique gift all for under $10 and less than half an hour of your sewing time.
Recently, when I became interested in collage, I discovered that it was the perfect technique for creating note cards. They're a natural canvas for scraps of fabric and trim that are too beautiful to throw away...
How often has your eye been caught by a bold, funky pattern in a thrift shop only to find that the print belongs to, ugh!, a muumuu? Well, despair no more, fair bargain maiden! We show you how to salvage that lovely fabric by transforming it into a chic top.

I love fine sewing but I don't always have the time to finish an entire garment. To practice my savvy stitching techniques, I like to test-drive them on a smaller project, like a trendy, designer-inspired bag.
