The mission was to complete the poodle skirt in time for Halloween :) I opted for the brilliant plan of making my girls poodle skirts this year for their costumes. Not a bad idea, except that I don't know much about sewing clothing or following a sewing pattern. Thankfully, I have friends that lent me their knowledge and moral support and helped me me complete the skirts. I am looking forward to my next sewing project, it isn't as tough as it looks :)
So, I had the skirts done. I found a poodle applique. I got 1-1/2 yards each of sequin trim from the fabric store. And I got out my bottle of Aleene's Fabric Fusion Permanent Dry Cleanable Fabric Adhesive.
I ironed on the poodle applique, then strung the sequins out in a way I liked. I made a line of Fabric Adhesive exactly where I wanted the sequins to go.
I found it best to work in sections, carefully applying the sequins. I let it dry for a few hours.
And, here they are being put to use! I do have to say, the Fabric Fusion is pretty strong stuff, and I like that it is clear and hides the areas where I added just a bit too much glue. ;) I am pretty sure that sequins is not going anywhere!
