Jazz Up Inexpensive Items

Quite often inexpensive items can be jazzed up to look much nicer! I picked up a fan for $1, but the print was a bit garish. I used my permanent markers to "color in" the flowered pattern and now it's gorgeous and doesn't look like it was a cheapo.

I did this with a $10 sweater. It has elbow length sleeves. I sewed 3 bright buttons to the bottom of each sleeve and now it looks like it cost a lot more. I receive a lot of compliments on it.
