DIY Sequin Art!!!

Thank you to the FreePeople blog, Caravan of Curiosities for such a wonderful, amazing crafting idea! I'm so excited to try this out....although I don't have much wall space left with all the picture frames I've been seems like it must be done simply for the sheer pleasure of making something so dang sparkley!

Here's some info on how to make your own!

"For our proto, our designer actually hand sewed each sequin on by hand, and then left a space for the screen printed flower applique. She does not recommend doing that yourself! Luren suggests going to a fabric store and buying a small amount of sequined fabric, maybe the stretchy variety. This could be a little expensive, so another great alternative would be to find some sequined wonder of a dress at a thrift store for a couple of dollars. That way you would be recycling material and not spending much $$. The fabric can them be fixed onto a frame of canvas stretchers and decorated as you like."
