Pack up your keys, headphones, cords, spare change, and other necessary odds and ends in these pretty little no-sew pouches. Constructed from durable microsuede—available at fabric and crafts stores—they look luxe but stand up to daily use. The best part? They are, quite literally, a cinch to make.
Stargazers -- or anyone looking to give her room lighting a dreamier dimension -- will love this easy decorating trick. All you need is a few crafting tools and an inexpensive white lampshade. Flick on the switch come nightfall and enjoy the customized twinkle that gleams through.
