We’re Recycling our DIYs for Earth Day Part 1

1

This Earth Day we’ve opted to recycle something…our DIYs. The M&J blog has been around since 2008 and we’ve been donning out useful information, tips and tricks since then. For those of you who have just started following us enjoy these DIYs for the first time. For those who have been reading along since the beginning look at how far we’ve come. We’d love to see some of your very own upcycled fashions. We felt it was only appropriate to highlight some of our favorite refashioned DIY’s of the past.

Place your 4MM HF Octagon Rhinestone Stud in Gold on your 8” Imported Ultra Suede Fringe- Beige
DSC_0135Make sure each of your 4MM HF Octagon Rhinestone Studs are centered on each piece of fringe.
Once the stud is properly placed, cover the fringe with a piece of scrap paper.
Iron the scrap piece of fabric for 15 seconds. This will allow your studs to properly stick.

Once you have added all of your studs onto your fringe you’re ready to attach your fringe to your bag. Starting from the inside, begin sewing the fringe into place.
