Question: What should you do when your garments/accessories are plain and boring?
Answer: Put studs on them!
I got these iron-on studs from Amazon with a gift card from the wedding. (Shh, don't tell Mike!) My first victim was an old jacket that seems to have a stain near the pocket. I put to good use the new iron we got via the wedding. The Wedding Iron. And yes, those are pick-ups from a suture kit. They are also handy when positioning rhinestones on DIY paper goods.
First I studded the pockets of the jacket. Then, I studded the collar of an old H&M shirt and decided to embellish the collar of the jacket similarly. See final product here.
Then I tried to apply this process to my Amish leather purse. Moral of story: do not iron leather. I will leave it up to the astute viewers to locate the warped and destroyed sadness that now plagues my purse.
