Add sequins to your clothing to create a little flash of colour and sparkle to your wardrobe. Sequins look cute on fancy and casual clothing. You may add them to a swimsuit, an evening gown or to a pair of jeans. Use brightly coloured sequins to add words or patterns or colour to a T-shirt or use gold or silver sequins to add drama to evening wear. Sequins are easy to sew on and allow you to make your clothes unique.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Thread a sewing needle with thread that matches the colour of the sequins. Put a knot in the thread at the end. Run the needle through the sequin and, perhaps, also through a bead, if you choose to use a small bead at the centre of the sequin. Either knot the thread at the back of the sequin or continue adding more sequins.

  2. 2

    Add sequins to a T-shirt to spell out a word or phrase or to simply add patterns of colour. Sequins add a burst of colour to any outfit. It is easy to sew them on and they add sparkle and whimsy to clothing.

  3. 3

    Decorate a swimsuit with sequins and beads to add sparkle. Sequins shimmer in the sunlight so they are a lovely accent to swimsuits.

  4. 4

    Make patterns out of sequins on a pair of jeans. You may also want to make your initials out of sequins to monogram jeans or other clothing.

Tips and warnings

  • Use varying sizes of sequins to add interest to your clothing.
  • Add beads, too, to add glimmer to the sequins.
  • Be careful to knot the sequins on tightly so that they stay attached to the clothing.
  • Use care when sewing; do not prick yourself with the needle.
