You’ll need:

  • Streetchy fabric
  • Measuring rulers
  • Pencil or something to draw
  • Scissors
  • Iron on adhesive or you can sew it
  • Elastic
  • A pencil skirt that fits you well

First, place your fabric on a flat surface fold it in half and on top of it put the pencil skirt that you will use as a guide.

Cut the excess fabric and leave about an each for seam allowance.

My baby wanted to be in the picture haha. Now from the first layer only, take the bottom corner X and bring up, to the height of your hips and the O to the left where the shortest part of the skirt will end.

Now you have three layers, place the iron on adhesive in between or sew the dashed line. Locate the elastic in the dashed rectangle and fold the fabric, i suggest you sew the elastic on it will last longer.

DIY Monogram Letter Pillow

I love love love DIYs so i wanted to introduce my first diy to the blog, i used to watch every episode of Fashion Police and was obsessed with the monogram letter pillows they had on the chairs so i thought of making one for myself, next i’ll show you step by step how to, this does not require sewing (thank god! cause i suck at it).

You’ll need:

  • 2 yards of white fabric or with a pattern your choice
  • Measuring rulers
  • Pencil or something to draw
  • Scissors
  • Iron on adhesive
  • Tape
  • Black fabric paint
  • Paint brush
  • Monogram letter printed in adhesive paper

First extend your fabric in a flat surface, draw a square of 17 to 18 inches and a rectangle 4 inches larger tha the square, leave about and inch of seam allowance, this is were you will be applying the iron on adhesive, cut both, (sorry for the quality of this photos i took them with my phone).

Next place the iron on adhesive on the edges of your square and on top of it the two rectangles with the seam facing you, don`t forget to place adhesive between the space where the two rectangles meet. Iron it until the fabric is glued.IMG_3228Turn it upside down and your pillow case is done! if you picked a printed fabric you could leave it like that but if you want your monogram letter next you have to cut off the letter and place the rest of the paper on top of the pillow case’s front face. With tape make a rectangle of an inch surrounding the letter and start painting.
