Starter Craft: Cut out this Glitter Collar for a sparkly Autumn!
I can't say enough good things about Cotton and Curls, one of a breed of craft blogs where the design and photography are as good as the stellar tutorials on offer. Lizzie, the blog's author, is excellent at putting together some truly fabulous how-to's for making designer-level clothing without patterns.
But one of my favorite Cotton and Curls tutes is also one of the simplest - a glitter collar how-to that will make the little kid in you squeal with pure delight. The materials are simple, the results are stellar- and you can have endless fun trying it with all of your fall outfits.
If you're feeling brave, check out the Cotton and Curls DIY section - you'll be out fabric-shopping before you know what hit you!
