So my DIY creation for the week is pretty simple. I’m sticking to the basics, with a solid black skinny scarf. It’s simple enough to wear it diversely with any outfit and it adds a cool vibe to any style, while still remaining playful.

What’s so great about scarves is that they’re year round accessories. And skinny scarves are a perfect companion for any spring and summer outfit, because of their simplistic decorative purpose, which makes them breathable.


Time estimation: 30 minutes

You’ll need a few supplies:

  • Silky fabric
  • Black thread
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine or fabric glue
  • Iron
  • Pins are optional


First, you would need to cut your fabric to the size you want. Then, you’ll need to pin the fabric down so you’ll be able to iron straight. If you don’t have pins just use a paperweight to hold down the ends, so you’ll be able to iron straight.


Then, sew down the edge.



Tie a knot with the thread after sewing each end.


Trim any excessive fabric from the seam.


Turn fabric inside out.


Iron the end edge inwards and close the seam either by machine or sewing by hand.

And you’re done!


Just wrap it around your neck, you can try knotting at the front or just throw it around your shoulder! There are so many ways to wear it and don’t stop from personalizing, I simply gave you the template of your canvas, so enjoy and experiment!

Embroidered Denim Jacket

Happy Monday, Creators! I noticed that embroidery has been all over the runways for Spring 2017. Being on trend can be costly, but not if you can do it yourself! Here is an inexpensive alternative to help you stay on trend, and keep money in your pockets, for this season!


Here are the materials you will need: denim jacket, needle, pins (or tape), a blank sheet of paper, pen, scissor, and embroidery threads (color of your choice).


First, on a blank document chose the font and size for the word you will be embroidery on your denim jacket.


Next, print and cut out your word.


Then you will pin and adjust it to the denim jacket until you are satisfied.


Once that is done, use a pen to trace out the stencil you created.


It should look something like this afterward.


Next step is to thread the embroidery thread into the needle and create a knot at the end of it. Now you’re ready to start embroidering!


Pull the needle through from the back of the denim jacket


To begin, I am embroidering in a horizontal direction then I will follow the direction of each curve in the letters.


Here you have it! Your trendy embroidered jacket should look like this once it is done!

Staying on trend does not have to mean spending hundred of dollars when you can do it yourself! Look good for the upcoming season with keeping money in your pocket. Stay tuned for next week’s inexpensive DIY!
