Phosphene Blogger of the Month – Febraury!

5

M&J’s First Blogger of the Month!!! *February

Pretty Little Things

A grosgrain ribbon here and a handful of appliqués there is all it takes to add a few pretty accents to your wardrobe. Using some bows, iron-ons, and tulle trim, this is how I revamped an old shirt, made a brooch perfect for pinning onto bags and jackets, and whipped up a hairband.

Dotted Collar Blouse

 What you’ll need:

Directions

  1. Before any ironing, experiment with how you’d like to place the iron-on nailheads. I decided on outlining each collar and then filling them in with rows.
  2.  Iron the sequins one at a time. Place one onto the fabric and press down firmly for about 10 seconds. I recommend placing a thin piece of fabric between the iron and the surface of the iron-on nailhead so as to not damage them with direct heat.
  3. Make sure each iron-on nailhead is in place and can’t be flicked off easily. After all of them are in place, iron all of them one last time.
  4. Add a large black ribbon around the collar for a girly touch.

The Super Easy Brooch

What you’ll need:

Directions

  1. Sew the rhinestone to the center of the grosgrain bow.
  2. Fold the tulle ribbon like a fan. Gather on the bottom and sew into place to the back of the bow.
  3. If you don’t have a pin back sitting around, a safety pin is a possible substitute. Just stick one in the back of the bow.
  4. Affix the brooch to lapels and collars, canvas bags, and more.

Gold Pompom Hairband

What you’ll need:

 Directions 

1. Sew appliqué into middle of the bow.

2. Sew both onto the side of the hairband. If the box can’t be sewn onto the hairband, for instance if you chose a metal or plastic hairband, you can use hot glue instead.
