Host Jen Arntson incorporates a traditional leatherworking style, called trapunto, on vinyl to create a wrist strap bag.

Stylelicious takes things personal as we add individuality to your wardrobe. Host Vickie Howell revamps a vintage tie by adding a peek-a-boo iron-on transfer.

Sorry about the quick cut-and-paste post without photos.  Yesterday was a rough day–trying to recuperate.
