Many of my childhood Summer vacations were spent in the South where fireflies lit up the night sky. I have a soft spot in my heart for the light-emitting bugs, which explains why I am swooning over this pair of hand-crafted LED booties. Made with denim, elastic, a battery, and light, the supplies are simple but the handiwork is impressive.

Winners of Craft's Michael Miller Baby Bootie Contest, husband and wife team Ana Pires and João Silva took the top prize. To see how to make these illuminating booties, click here.
