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.
18MM Foldover Elastic Trim
1.5″ Bugle/Seed Beaded Leaf Trim
Apply a decent amount of E-6000 glue along your elastic band.
Place your 1.5″ Bugle/Seed Beaded Leaf Trim on the area that you had just glued.
Allow the headband to dry for 24 hours prior to wearing it.
Now 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.
Try mixing and matching various trims and appliques using the same steps. We’d love to see what you come up with! #MJTRIMMING
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?
Leftover chain from a previous project
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.
Place the chain over the E-6000, applying a small amount of pressure.
Wait 24 hours prior to showing off your new hair clip.
This will ensure the longevity of the clip.
How easy was that?

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
- 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.
