FASHION FRIDAY | fringe

At first I wasn’t a big fan of fringe – think cowgirls and spurs, but it has grown on me since seeing it around this year. I’m especially loving the fringe bags! I’ll have to get one for fall :). So what do you think of this trend? Yay or nay?

FASHION FRIDAY | DIY wrap sandals

For awhile I’ve been wanting some cuff ankle sandals but I haven’t found a pair that I absolutely love yet so I decided to make my own version! I had some older black thong heels that I don’t really wear anymore so I added some black fabric and now they look completely different and updated! You guys can all do this and I hardly spent any money! You could even add some hardware to them like little gold studs or a chunky bow to the sides. Have fun with it!

Here’s what I did:

Step 1: Gather materials. You will need a pair of sandals, chalk, fabric, and snaps.

Step 2: Cut a strip about 2 feet long and 31/2 inches wide.

Step 3: To clean up edges (mine were fraying like crazy) fold and iron down both sides.

Step 4: Sew down both sides.

Step 5: Fold over one end of the fabric to one side of the sandal and sew shut.

Step 6: At the other end of the fabric sew 2 snaps on. (Sew the snaps on the inside of the fabric.)

Step 7: Put on the sandal and wrap the fabric around your ankle and measure where the other side of the snap should go. Mark the spot with the chalk.

Step 8: Sew on the other side of the snaps where you marked the chalk. (Sew the snaps on the outside of the fabric.) That’s it! Now put the sandals on and wrap and snap the fabric!

A FASHION FRIDAY DIY

I’ve been wanting to share this easy DIY with you all for awhile! It’s such a simple idea and really easy to do. I have give credit to my friend Becca for this one – this was her idea so bunch of us got together and made some of these cute hair wraps.

The great thing about these is that there’s WIRE in them so you can create whatever shapes you want and it stays put! You have the freedom here to get creative.. maybe even weave it through a side braid..?! Plus you can choose all sorts of different fabrics and do a variety of thicknesses and lengths! I’ve already made 3 :).

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Gather materials needed – Floral wire, Fabric, and basic sewing tools.

Step 2: Cut a strip of fabric wide enough to fold in half (can be as thick as you want!) but make sure it’s long enough to go around your head once or twice with some extra on the ends. I liked making mine super long.

Step 3: Fold right sides together and iron flat.

Step 4: Sew together the long way. psst.. you don’t need a sewing machine to do this – it just goes faster that way!

Step 5: Attach a safety pin to one side but only through one side of the fabric. Then feed the pin through the tube to make it right-side out.

Step 6: Take your wire and bend one end into a loop.

Step 7: Feed the wire through the fabric tube.

Step 8: This part is a little tricky because you want the wire loop to stay put at the ends. Hold the wire loop at the end while sewing the fabric shut and make sure you put stiches thru the wire loop too. So now the ends of the wire will stay put. Then just repeat on the other end and you are done!

Here’s me putting my hair wrap on:

Have fun with it and let me know if you try it!
