Adding funky embellishments is one of the quickest and easiest refashioning methods you can use to update your wardrobe!
Sift through your stash and snag those groovy little doilies, zippers and buttons and discover how to take those clothes lurking at the back of your closet from drab to oh-so-uniquely fab with my Refashioning 101: DIY Embellishments!
Grab a plain sweater or top, your button stash and a needle and thread.
Sort through the buttons and decide which ones you’d like to adorn your sleeve cuffs. I selected a bunch of white, ivory & clear buttons in varying sizes and shapes to keep the style and colours of the sweater neutral enough to wear with just about anything!
Handstitch the buttons in place…
and then repeat on the other sleeve cuff!
Sooooo simple yet soooo cool! (+ they make some groovy music when you shake your wrists)
