Phosphene Blogger of the Month – Febraury!


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:


  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:


  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:


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.
