DIY Embellished Top Inspired By Pantone 2016

By Cinnamonspring @CinnaSpring

If you didn't already know, PANTONE is the "world-renowned authority on color" and every year they set a PANTONE Colour of the Year. Well, for the first time ever, PANTONE Colour of the Year 2016 is a blend of TWO shades: Rose Quartz and Serenity as pictured in the banner below.

As I am trying to discipline myself this year to embark on more DIY (personal) projects, I decided to immerse myself in some inspiration, starting with colour. As DIYKL is stocking pastel rhinestones (soon to be up on the website, do email [email protected] for inquiries), I was inspired to use one-half of PANTONE 2016 which is Rose Quartz. Rose Quartz is a soft and warm rose tone, and so I decided to embellish my oversized white knit crop top (sorry that's a mouthful!) to give it a little luxe look without compromising the relaxed element of the top.

What you need:

  • Rhinestones (Note: The rhinestones I used are not exact colours to Rose Quartz)
  • Top or dress you wish to embellish
  • Needle (small enough to fit the holes at the side of the rhinestones)
  • Needle threader
  • Thread in the colour closest to the clothing you are going to embellish
  • Scissors

Step 1: As the eye of the needle is small, threading the thread through it can be tricky and frustrating. Fret not, there's always help in a needle threader! To use this, insert the needle threader through the eye of the needle FIRST. Once it is through, slip the thread through the other end of the needle threader like in the picture above.

Step 2: Once the thread has been threaded through, slowly pull the needle threader out. Voila! Your thread is now threaded through the eye of the needle. Pull as much thread is needed (not too long, otherwise the thread will get tangled!), before making a double knot.

Step 3: Before you start sewing, get creative by choosing a design with your rhinestones. Once you are satisfied with the design, take a photo of it.

Step 4: Begin sewing! Sew using the needle from under the material, into the first hole and exiting through the hole opposite it. Sew under the material. Repeat this step once or twice more to make the bonding stronger.
