There’s something about sequins that we can’t get enough of. When looking for a medium for our pillow revamp we jumped at the opportunity of incorporating our notice me-trim: sequins!
2 ¼ “6-ROW STRETCH SEQUIN-Turquoise
2 ¼ “6-ROW STRETCH SEQUIN-Blue Iris
Place the end of your sequin trim over your pillow. Cut the trim once it reaches the other side creating a sequin trim strip.
Continue to cut your sequin trim into even pieces. Create as many strips as needed to cover the entire pillow. Lay your now even pieces in a pattern you feel comfortable with. We opted to mix our Blue Iris Sequin Trim with our Turquoise Sequin Trim
Using your Gem Tac Glue begin gluing down your first piece of sequin trim. Continue gluing each piece one at a time
Before you know it your pillow will be ready to show off

Ombre dip dying has been trending in both the fashion and beauty industry for quite some time. The free spirited trend has suddenly made a comeback in the interior decor market. In the 60’s and 70’s dip dying had been a very popular technique. The dip dying technique adds color hues without compromising the natural beauty of many textiles. The process is fairly simple but not to be overlooked. Check out Michael Penney Style’s Dip Dye Tutorial, along with other inspirational images. Along with dyed ribbons we are proud to sell Rit-Dye both online and at our flagship store.

Adding stripes to your home decor can be conservative, preppy or even punk. In fashion stripes are very safe but in home decor they can be very daring. Rather than taking the plunge on your walls start small. Incorporating one or two striped pieces will add polish and sophistication to your home. For a deeper impact, incorporate stripes in more than one place. Here at M&J we have many striped trims. Check out our great assortment for inspiration.
