This is an old trick of mine that not only saves time, but also adds a little pop of color. I use puffy paint (it’s washable and fabric friendly!) to add sequins to my fabric collages. Of course, it would be nice to be ab le ot stitch on each and every sequins each and every time, but sometimes I don’t have time for that!
I promised my friend i’d make an apron for her for an event and I had about two hours to get it done! Here’s a little Vine I made of the process.
One of my shortcuts was adding those gold sequins!
I used gold puffy paint, but you can use silver or black, keeping in mind that it will add a background to the sequin.
Here is the top part of the apron. I loved all the colors, but feel like Frida needed to stand out more. She is Frida, afterall! Trimming her in gilded circles would do the job!
I added a drop of puffy paint in a row, about five at a time, and then used a crayon to pick up each sequin and drop it in place. Let it dry on flat surface for an hour.
And here is the gorgeous Elena wearing my apron!
By the way, if you want more apron tutorials, here they are!
