DIY Designer Spring Blog Hop 2
Posted by Expo Trims on Apr 16th 2019
What happens when you send talented Designer/Bloggers a package of trims? The results are fabulous unique designs and they are sharing the DIY process so you can create your very own! There is also a great Giveaway too!
A huge thank you to Candy Rosenberg, Laura Kelly, Susan M. Brown and Anita Scroggins for sharing their talent and expertise!
Susan upcycled a stylish trio for a weekend getaway. The black lace just pops with the neutral pieces, so on trend and what a statement look! With Earth Day this month this is such a timely project to renew something you already have and make it completely brand new. She shares all of the details on her blog. sbartist.blogspot.com/2019/04/ready-for-weekend-getaway-diy-bloghop.html

General Tips for using our trims. Many of our trims can be sewn or glued. When gluing use a Fabric Adhesive, we like Fabri-Tac by Beacon. Hot glue adhesives works well for items that will not be washed. Other trims can be either sewn by machine or by hand.
When choosing trims always read the materials used and the care instructions. On our website they are included under each trim. There are also suggested uses. If you have any questions Customer Service will be able to help or send us an inquiry through Face Book.
Every week you can find our Can You Trim It Tuesday where we share trims and DIY looks three ways. We also have monthly giveaways too. We would love to have you share your DIY fashion and home décor projects with us!
Follow us on all out Social Media to see what creative inspiration is happening!
Create, make & diy!
