A hot trend right now for spring and summer fashions are embellishments. This is a trend that can be seen on anything ranging from handbags, to tops. We here at Plaid want to share a cool way you can embellish your jeans with some sequins. Typically when you think of Plaid thoughts of paint, and mod podge may come to mind, but did you know we make sequins too? We are just full of surprises, and great products. Let me introduce you to Plaid’s no sew iron on sequins. Ideal for trimming t-shirts, evening wear, skating and dance outfits, costumes, jeans, and home décor/craft projects! Each package features complete application instruction, 1 sheet of iron-on placement film and care suggestions. A blog friend of ours, Anne from Wobisobi, used our sequins to re-style her jeans. This is such a chic project. It took barley anytime to create, and only requires a few supplies. Click here to see how Anne made this.
Happy Friday! Any crafting plans for the weekend? Well I know what I will be crafting. I am in need of a spring clutch, and luckily I recently stumbled across this one, found on Ricochet and Away. I love this clutch. It is so fashionable, trendy, and chic. Can you believe this is the result of combining Martha Stewart paint, with Mod Podge? Who knew these two craft supplies would make such a great team. Rikka is the designer of this clutch, and a new fashion DIY blogger friend of ours. She makes some fabulous DIY projects.
