Project

Sparkle bag

What are you most proud of? The swirly embroidery and the beads over the sequins to make little flowers. They were just cheap kits from a card-making shop and worked really well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Cut a pattern to size using the wadding. Lay out fabric pieces on top and stitch embroidery swirls to hold in place and give quilted effect. Then sew on sequins and beads as required. Finally make the bag.

You Can Make This

Crunchie Menace made Sparkle bag with:

  • Taffeta remnants
  • multicoloured metallic thread
  • Sequins and beads from card making kit. Bag wadding for padding between outer and lining. Dress zip.
