When working on a recent project and trying to decide on what method to use, I found there weren't many tutorials with pictures for sewing sequins. So here's a few different methods of hand-sewing sequins for embellishment! This is by no means all the ways of using sequins, it's just a few examples to get you started. :)
I'm using a bright color of thread for better visibility; when doing this for real you'd want a thread that matches your sequins and/or fabric.
What you need:Loose sequins
- flat or cuppedBeading needle
(most regular hand-sewing needles won't fit through seed beads)Seed beads
or tiny crystals (optional)Thread conditioner
or plain beeswax to keep your thread from tangling
Regular sewing thread or beading thread (your preference)
