Sequin Top - tutorial

 One of my FAVORITE things to do is refashion! Here's a project anyone can do!

Sequin Top

Tank top or any top
Liquid Stitch
Roll of single strand sequins - any color you like

Step 1: Place cardboard in between the layers of the top. This will keep the glue from seeping through to the other side.

Step 2: Use your Liquid Stitch to draw a design. I chose an abstract flower. You could do any type of squiggley lines, a chevron pattern, stripes, etc. Work in "small" areas at a time.

Step 3: Apply the sequins and press into the glue.

Step 4: Vary the sizes and placement of your design.

Step 5: Let dry according to the package directions and then WEAR!

Layer it, wear it, pair it with another color! It will add some sparkle to your everyday wear and dress up that plain colored top!

If you create one, I'd love to have you share it in the Brassy Apple Flickr group for everyone to see! 

I will be linking up HERE throughout the week!

  23. I love this idea. I know my girls will love making some shirts just like yours. I am wondering how the liquid stitch holds up? How does it wash?

  24. In regards to present day fashion, the fitness world has created a craze of certain items such as gym tank tops and yoga pants that are worn as casual wear by many people on a daily basis, whether they attend a gym or not.
