Call us a tad bit biased, but we can’t help our latest obsession over our foldover elastic trim. Here’s a fun and easy DIY tutorial for the wearable elastic.

SUPPLIES
18MM Foldover Elastic Trim
1.5″ Bugle/Seed Beaded Leaf Trim

1. Headband Supplies

Apply a decent amount of E-6000 glue along your elastic band.

2. Glue

Place your 1.5″ Bugle/Seed Beaded Leaf Trim on the area that you had just glued.

3. Placing

Allow the headband to dry for 24 hours prior to wearing it.

4. DryNow that the trim is secured, tie your elastic into a double knot.
The elastic is easy to unknot so feel free to test out different measurements making sure the headband rests comfortably on your crown.

5. Knot

Try mixing and matching various trims and appliques using the same steps. We’d love to see what you come up with! #MJTRIMMING

Easy DIY Barrette

3

We love sprucing up our locks, but sometimes we wake up wanting to snooze another ten minutes rather than dedicating that time on our hair. This easy to do barrette transformation will take less than five minutes to complete and give you an excuse to sleep in. Simply clip your hair up with this chain barrette and you’ll look movie star set for the day. What’s not to love?

SUPPLIES
Leftover chain from a previous project
E-6000 glue
Barrette

1. Barette SuppliesSTEPS
Make sure that your chain matches up with your barrette prior to starting.
If the chain is too long us your pliers to adjust the measurement.

Open your barrette. Once you have done this, apply a small amount of glue along the flat metal part of the hair clip.

3. Glue

Place the chain over the E-6000, applying a small amount of pressure.

4. Chain

Wait 24 hours prior to showing off your new hair clip.
This will ensure the longevity of the clip.

5. FinishedHow easy was that?

Monogrammed Pillows

By  Sketch 42 blogger Nicole Cohen 

Ever since I saw this picture of design team Badgely-Mischka’s horse farm home with its killer monogrammed bed pillows, I have been loving them.   I think esthetically it happens to look really cool. It looks crisp and modern and adds a graphic element to an otherwise simple bed.

You can make your own gorgeous monogramed pillows with nothing but a pillow, the trim of your choice and a needle and thread!  For a kids room, I would love to make the monogram out of a lot of  buttons, sewed on to the pillow in the shape of a letter!  or an edgier look, I would use a nailheads to add a little bit of rock n roll to a room…  For the simplest and most refined look, I would use our chrome spun grosgrain ribbon and some iron on tape to create a chic monogram!    

 Here’s what I came up with for a children’s room     

Materials Used: 

Directions: 

  •  First Step- Take out the cushion/feathers/Stuffing from the pillow, the write out the desired letter and design with Tailors chalk on the pillow
  • Second Step- (can be done in two ways)
  • First Way: Place the buttons on the traced letter and put tape over the buttons for a strong hold. Then machine stitch the buttons onto the pillow case and remove the tape when you’re are finished.
  • Second Way: Hand-sew each button onto the traced letter, if you are not able to machine stitch.
  • Third Step- When you are done sewing on the buttons take your ribbon (any other trim) and machine or hand-stitch the desired design around the buttoned letter.
  • Fourth Step- Re-stuff your pillow and find the perfect place for your new pillow.

 

Happy DIY!
