Happy Monday all ya'll crafty peeps! Well, Swap-o-Rama at the Renegade Craft Fair was a huge success (even if it was Carmageddon here in Los Angeles).
Here are a couple of young designers that made hats inspired by the one on the cover of my book Sweater Surgery and tried their hand at applique using the Sizzix Cupcake die. Pretty awesome huh?
