Scissors
Pins
Sewing machine or needle and thread 

 


Step 1
Lie your patch on your chosen garment base & pin in place


Step 2
We recommend machine sewing around the perimeter using a small zigzag stitch to catch the edges of all the sequins. You can hand sew these in place if you prefer but please keep your stitches as close together as possible to catch the sequin edges.


Step 3
Trim your threads and you are done ... Yes it is THAT easy!



Tip: Be sure to drop the needle, lift the sewing foot, and manually swivel the whole garment each time you come to a curve / corner.  This will ensure you are not pulling and stretching your garment out of shape.
