Sewing Minis (Ep 2): Tips for Sewing Sequin Fabric

by Sarah

In this episode we show you how to sew sequin fabric with some fast tips and tricks. This video is geared towards fabric that has sequin sew on to it, not glued on to it. Fabric with sequin glued on it is sewn just like any fabric, because you can’t remove the sequin pieces. If you have fabric is glued on sequin, make sure to use a strong needle and a walking foot. You’ll also need some alcohol wipes or nail polish near by to clean the needle as glue accumulates.

Sewing sequin fabric takes a ton of time, but there are some simple tricks to save you time, like only removing sequin within the path of the seam line. You’ll always have bald spots to fill in, so you want to either keep your scraps handy or buy loose sequin in the same color.

If you’re sewing a sequin garment, expect to sew some kind of lining, as sequin fabric will irritate the wearers skin.

If you have any trouble, feel free to leave a message in the comment section below. We’re happy to help!

Sara, Great videos! I enjoy watching you and Thank You for not making us watch ALL of the actual sewing (like some videos). One thing you might want to edit up above: You mention: need some alcohol wipes or nail polish near by to clean the needle as glue accumulates. I am sure you meant to say NAIL POLISH REMOVER! SOME NEWBIE IS GONNA GET A BIG SURPRISE with nail polish!
Again, thanks for the tutorials.

You are really so much fun to watch. You make me want to try all of your projects. You should make a video telling us a little about yourself and how you started working for Sewing Parts on Line and how you became their YouTube Star. Thanks again for all of the sewing help!
