M&J Trimming is excited to announce that we’ve begun carrying a range of new products exclusively in the store! We’re always looking to give our customers the best trimmings, appliques and notions to make their projects and DIYs unique, but the items we’ve added are going to take their crafting game to the next level. You loved our pom poms this year, so it was only logical to add more! We’ve added pom poms in almost every color and size, and the best part? They’re 15% off!
Welcome spring with a decor accent that highlights the colors of the season! We’ve made a pillow cover that’s perfectly pastel, and just the thing to brighten up your space after a chilly winter. We used Rit Dye to create a watercolor effect on the fabric by painting the dye on instead of dipping the fabric in.

We love to dye at M&J. It’s always an experiment because the medium has a mind of its own! We embraced that free-flowing spirit with this next DIY, a tank top worthy of any mermaid under the sea.
What You’ll Need:
White tank top
Big Plastic Bucket or Sink
1. Follow the RIT Dye instructions. We used teal RIT dye powder, which we combined with 2 cups of hot water and 5 cups of lukewarm water.
2. Dip the end of your tank into the dye. If you want an ombre effect, leave the ends of the tank in the dye for a longer period of time.
3. Wring the excess dye out into the bucket.
4. Wash out your tank until the running water becomes clear. This will indicate the dye has set in and will not run.
4. Allow your tank to dry.
5. When your tank is dry, create a design on the bottom of the colored tank using paillettes.
6. Glue your paillettes down in your desired pattern. We chose to border the bottom of the tank to represent fish scales, but you can choose whatever design you’d like!
And there you have it, an Under the Sea tank top. We know Ariel would trade all of her thingambobs for this shiny tank! Do you want to replace the paillettes with pearls or rhinestones? Take a look at our Under the Sea page for some extra inspiration!
Ok, so you’ve probably heard about dip dyeing. The technique has been around for ages, but it’s picked up a lot of steam in the past few years with the resurgence of the DIY movement. We actually LOVE to dip dye at M&J, and one of our upcoming Halloween DIYs features the method! But since we’re holding the Trick or Trims RIT Dye Giveaway, we thought you might need a few more dyeing options with all of that RIT Liquid Dye you might receive. Here are a few of our favorites.
These tie-dye jeans by SwellMayde are awesome! She used a sponging technique to get that abstract pattern. We wonder what this would look like using greens and taupes. Tie-dye camo anyone?
