Top 10 Fashion Crafts of 2012

Top 10 fashion crafts of 2012 from

I have a little confession to make. I don’t sew. As in, I can’t sew. Which for someone who is a self-describer DIYer feels a touch shameful. I swear, 2013 is my year to learn to sew! (Finally…maybe.) But let me assure you, my lack of sewing prowess doesn’t make me any less giddy about all of the awesome fashion crafts that popped up in 2012. In fact, what I love about a lot of them is that they’re completely sew-free. Bonus! Want to gussy up your wardrobe for 2013? Here are my picks for the top 10 fashion crafts of 2012!
