This utilitarian and multipurpose hardware staple has been a favorite of mine since elementary school. I remember my dream of fashioning a retro-looking dress out of it after watching Molly Ringwald come up with the Coolest Prom Dress Ever in the movie Pretty in Pink. Back then, the colors were limited to black, gray and white. Now there are endless colors, prints and patterns available with cool tutorials on making everything from flip flops to hats.
The following pictures show my oldest niece crafting a small project bag for her favorite knitting aunt.
