Are you a DIY dunce like myself? Have you tried to figure out how to use a sewing machine to no avail?

Well take a deep breath, chill the f*** out, grab a pair of scissors and let Sheri Pavlovic, the DIY extraordinaire at Confessions of a Refashionista, teach you how to make cool sh** without the tears. 

No? Just me? I’m the only grown adult that cries when my fingers get stuck together with superglue? Okay. Well. Moving on.
