DIY Sequined Collar


A plain sweater plus a bit of fancy ribbon equals a whole bunch of sparkly fabulous(ness).  Those of you who know me, KNOW that I hate JoAnn's Fabric Store with everything in me.  Yes, I had to ask a lady where I could find some thread, and yes, I left with a stress rash all over my body.  (Ok, the stress rash part isn't true, but that's how JoAnn's makes me feel).  Too many sewing supplies and not enough sewing talent to navigate through it all.

Anyways, I would give you a step by step on this, but all I did was sew some fabric on to my sweater, ironed it flat at the end, and that's that.  A new sweater for Ashley!

Have you tackled any DIY projects lately?

Linking up with AVSharon, Katie, and Jena

Popping over from Friday's Fancies - and thinking this sweater might be worth a stressful trip to Joann's! It's so fabulous. (And I know exactly what you mean about that place - and for me it's not just lack of sewing talent, in the store by me it's unfortunately also lack of employees with customer service talent...)

Angela Joy Holmes said...

Such a great holiday DIY! It looks so fabulous, never would guess it's diy :)
