2 ways to add sequins
As seen in Cross Stitcher
Add shimmer and shine to your projects with glam sequins! Here are two easy ways to anchor them
1. Make a French knot-topped sequin
Bring your needle up through the centre of your sequin. Wrap your thread around the needle a couple times then take your needle back down through the centre of the sequin to anchor in place. We’ve used six strands of thread for a chunky knot, but the choice is yours.
2. Make a bead-topped sequin
For a really sparkly finish, first bring your needle up through the sequin’s centre. Then thread on a seed bead and come back down through the centre of your sequin to anchor. This technique is a great choice if you’re not a fan of French knots.
