While I was surfing around I found a lovely sequin flower. There were no instructions, but it was mentioned that originally instructions were in an Australian magazine. Anyway, I had a go at it and it turned out fine. You need to have sequins that are shaped like bowls, or concave. I don't think it would work with flat sequins.
This is what I did.
1. Where I wanted the middle of the flower I put a dot on the fabric.
|This shows five of the petals completed and the sixth one laid out to show the order of the beads and sequins on the thread before being sewn down. Also shown is the pattern I marked on the fabric. The diameter of this circle is 5/8".|
4. Repeat until all six are finished.
|This is the finished flower with two stamens in the centre.|
