greetings from sunny florida! that’s right, i’m blogging during vacation but i was too excited about this diy not to share, especially since it’s so perfect for the beach.
when prepping for this much needed vacation – and i mean much needed – i was doing some shopping and came across this sequin embroidered hat by eugenia kim. maybe you’ve seen them around? suuuuuuper cute, right? i’ve even seen my girl kelly from studiodiy rocking it. the price, however, is not super cute so i thought i’d attempt to make my own version and i have to say i’m preeety in love with it. and the best part?! it was easy and cost only a teeniest fraction of the cost of the designer hat. diy success!
when i started laying out the sequin strand i was having trouble getting things to stay in place. my sister suggested using sewing pins to help layout the letters and it was so helpful and i highly suggest it
once the pins were in place i used the hot glue gun to adhere the sequin strand down. i would suggest doing a little at a time and securing the points of the letters first and fill them in with glue.
sunny skies for daysss! i mean look at that sunburn! but at least my hat is styling 😉 what do you think of this diy? could this hat be a new summertime staple?
hello friends! it’s been so long since i posted last and it makes me real sad. i promise i got some stuff coming up but i thought it might be fun to kick off with another edition of ‘catherine glue’s patches on her clothes’! if you didn’t get catch my last posts – studio diy-inspired embroidered patch shoes and my saint patty’s day elbow-patch sweater – check them out! i love customizing my outfits this way. they’re so unique and special and pretty and it really puts that extra bounce in my step!
when i was doing my usual online window shopping (and loading up shopping carts with things i can’t buy right now) i stumbled on these amazing heels from asos (which i can’t seem to find anymore). seriously LOVE them. especially the pop-art comic book type.
happy fry-day! the internet can cook up the funniest trends sometimes – some are egg-ceptionally funny and quirky and others are a bit egg-streme or egg-cessive and some are both….can you maybe see where i’m going with this? this particular trend i might lump in the ‘both’ category and is all about fried eggs. as a lover of emojis, flair and fried eggs this trend has me egg-sploding with delight! here are five examples from around the web as well as eight egg-celent goodies you can grab for yourself! i yolk you enjoy!
