Guest DIY: Katie from Skunkboy Creatures

Inspiration 1.JPGHello friends! It's Katie from Skunkboy Creatures. The DIY I have to share today is a pretty collar in honor of the blog party! You can wear it over t-shirts, sweaters or anything you like! My inspiration for this project was this pretty owl.  She shares my love of pretty collars and dainty fabrics!

7.  Sew your button on one of the edges.  You can either make a button hole on the other edge, or make a loop with a piece of yarn and stitch it on (be sure your opening is large enough for your button).
