The first sequin prototype, which was a thin metal plate, was used by man more than 4, 5 years ago. Sequins were made from both natural gold and silver, as well as more affordable metals that only imitated jewelry. In any case, the clothes decorated with such decor were much heavier than modern ones. Today, craftswomen are offered a variety of sequins of different sizes, colors and shapes. You can choose classic round elements, or you can take convex polygonal sequins for volumetric embroidery.
For sequins, choose lavsan thread. Since most patterns involve continuous sewing, it is important to avoid breakage and unwanted knots. It is better to take a long needle, and its thickness depends on the type of fabric. For large patterns, sequins are overlapped on top of each other. It is convenient to sew on individual elements by placing a small bead or bead in the middle of the sequin. Master the basic schemes to turn your things into real masterpieces.
