Today we are going to attach sequins fabric with a sewing machine. When I was at the sewing machine store the other day and I have come across a foot that attaches sequins and ribbons using a sewing machine.
So before we pop sequin feet on I Just need to go through a checklist of items that we need to make sure we do before we start sewing our sequins.
The materials you’ll need are:
- 2 yards of sequin fabrics, I’m using Blush Glitz Sequin fabric,
- 2 yards of stretch lining, I’m using Charmeuse fabric, scissors, threads, Ballpoint pens, a hand needle, and ballpoint needles.
- A frame
Here are the 7 easiest ways for sewing sequin fabric, so let’s get started:
Step 1: Cut around the frame, leaving about an inch of extra fabric on each side. Then just use hot glue to glue it down and I did mine in sections so that the glue wouldn’t dry before I could get the fabric on there.
Step 2: Then just open up the frame, trim off the corners, and glue down the extra fabric. And, that’s it. This is perfect for if you’re bored in class or if you just want to give a makeover to your boring old notebooks.
Step 3:Next, grab a plain tote bag and print out a pattern of whatever designs you want to make. I’m going with a heart. Trace your design on the back of the sequin fabric and cut it out. Then use fabric glue to glue down the middle of the design.
Step 4: Let that dry and then use a needle and thread to sew down the edges so that the whole thing stays in place. Use a ruler and a white pencil to make this pattern on the back of the fabric. Then use a hot glue gun to glue the ends into the center to make a bow.
Step 5: Glue the bottom piece underneath. And then cut a strip of felt and wrap that around the center.
Step 6: And finally, glue on a hair clip. If you want it to be sturdier, you could add some kind of backing fabric so that each piece is a little stiffer.
Step 7: Make sure that the edge of the sequins is the top of the pocket because we’re going to glue down that extra fabric to get a nice clean edge. Then decide on the placement and pin it in place.
So these are the best ways I can get you and now we’re going sew around these three sides, and try to hide your stitches under the sequins as much as possible.
