A Stitch In Time

Feeling crafty but intimidated by Superglue (eek) or knitting needles (oh my)? Fret not, friends! Crafting 101 is as simple as picking up a needle and thread and embroidering a hella cool design on a throw pillow or T-shirt. Sublime Stiching: Embroidered Effects by Jenny Hart has instructions and diagrams for 35 stiches, including a temporary tattoo for a shirt sleeve or wine bottles on your apron! There’s even dozens of reusable iron-on transfers to funkify your threads. Make your home-ec teacher proud and hop on the embroidery train. (You can always learn to knit later!)
