I know this isn’t a super Valentiny craft. But I couldn’t resist taking my man’s horrible bachelor pillows and covering them with sequin from an old sweater. Who needs a sequin turtle neck sweater anyway? Clearly I did for some reason, but now I can see clearly and destroyed the turtle neck.
I don’t have a great step by step here. But it was really easy. Cut the fabric you want, no measuring required just eyeball it. Then I laid it on the grossest side of the pillow, folded the edge so the end of the row of sequin was secured and stitched it to the pillow with black thread. I did this by hand because I like sewing that way but you can absolutely use a machine. It turned out pretty good if I say so myself.
I’m a girlie girl if there ever was one and I’ve been seeing some majorly girlie looks on Spring 2012 runways. Here are my favs…
Miu Miu featured some super cutsie lace mini dresses, ribbon adorned jackets, and detailed bags. The warrior make-up was the final touch… excellent!
It’s like Marc Jacobs was rummaging through my accessory drawer for this season’s Louis Vuitton Spring 2012. I’m a huge believer in flash and trash, otherwise known as sparkle!!! The silhouettes were amazingly girlie with lots of lace and bright colors. Oh Marc, my love, you always make me so happy!
Paco was definitely glitz meets woah!! It was very Metropolis meets robot space aliens. But sparkles are always girlie, thus it made my most amazingly girlie list.
These are some of my favorite moments from this season’s Badgley Mischka line.
