DIY: Vintage Trim Cuffed Jeans

Have you ever wandered into a store and found a beautiful jacquard trim or a vintage trim, but didn’t know what you could use it for? Your jeans of course! This DIY is cool because of its semi-permanence. Cuff ’em and show of the trim or un-cuff ’em and have your jeans back and no one’s the wiser. Watch the video below to see how to make them and scroll down for more details.

What you’ll need:

A Pair of Jeans

A Vintage Trim/Jacquard Trim

E6000 Glue

Scissors

Step 1: Measure the bottom of your jeans. Add two inches to that and cut the trim to that measurement.

Step 2: Apply glue to the end of the trim and fold it over once at about an inch. This is to hide/seal the frayed end.

Step 3: Apply a line of glue to the jeans at the seam and at the top and bottom of the cuff. Start glueing the trim all around. E6000 takes some time to dry and it helps if you don’t jostle the fabric too much.

Step 4: Repeat Step 2 when you get to the end and glue down the end to the jeans.

 

That’s it, you’re done!

DIY: Beaded Summer Sandals

It’s time to free those toes! Put away the stuffy boots and slide into some flirty sandals, because spring is here! We just got these great new beaded iron-on trims and had to put them on something quick. 

What you’ll need:

A Pair of Sandals

Beaded Rhinestone Trim (This one is Iron-On but we didn’t want to iron it onto vinyl)

Pom Pom Trim

E6000

Scissors

Step 1: Cut the trim to size by measuring it on the sandals. To play it safe, cut a little extra on either side. You can always trim that later.

Step 2: Apply a thin line of E6000 on the the strap. Stick the pom pom trim to it with the pom poms facing outward.

(E6000 is a great glue but make sure you’re working in a well ventilated area since it’s a powerful formula. It also takes longer to dry than other glues. You can use a glue gun for quicker results)

Step 3: Apply glue between the two pom pom trims and glue on the rhinestone trim. Since this is an iron on trim you have the option of ironing it on if your base fabric will allow it.

Step 4: Trim the excess on either side and let dry.

And you’re done!
