First up is this functional idea – a chair caddy!
It’s the perfect project for a beginner sewer, it’s all squares and straight sewing. And the best part is it’s something you can use every day or give as a gift to someone. You can even make several – one for each room in the house. We have one for the remotes in the TV room and then I have one in art studio for supplies I use a lot and another in the office for journals.

Bleached and dyed T-shirts!
I made this project years ago, and you know what? I was ahead of the times. I used masking tape, stickers, doilies, anything to create a masked effect before I applied the bleach. Then I added the dye to bring some rainbow color. My best advice is to do a test strip first so you don’t ruin your shirt. Also, make sure to use shirts that are at least 60% cotton, any less – the bleach or dye won’t work.

Painted floral shoes!
These are a classic Crafty Chica fave! You can pick up a pair of stilettos at the second-hand shop. Even if you don’t wear heels, you can use them as shrines or even succulent holders! Think “out of the shoe” so to say. and you can definitely apply this idea to sneakers, boots, even clothing of course!

Succulent Glass Ware!
Can you tell I like to repurpose everyday items for new uses? Buy some pretty Mexican Margarita glasses and use them as planters. Theses make awesome party favors, housewarming gifts and I think they work great for a craft party. As soon as we are all in the clear to have craft parties again!
