DIY Embellished Collar Tutorial from Honestly…WTF here. Click on the link in the tutorial to see an Instagram pic of an embellished pocket using the same technique. Lots of things I like about this project:

  • no sewing!
  • the use of buttons, rhinestones and pearls all together
  • and of course there are always links to absolutely everything for all DIY Honestly..WTF posts
