Regretsy: Upcycled crafts gone wrong

DIY crafts may be popular, but many a knitter knows the first clumsy completed projects are usually only lovable for the creator. And while some upcycled crafts can make for creative, stylish, reuse of materials, other new-again projects are really quite, um, interesting-looking.
Then there's the Pizza Roll Plastic Guinea Pig (right), made with upcycled pizza roll bags. The crafter certainly went the extra mile in terms of upcycling, since the loose scraps from the project are used as stuffing for the guinea pig -- zero waste! But whether or now you find this toy lovable will depend on how well you can reimagine what a guinea pig looks like -- and perhaps how much you like pizza rolls.
