A needle & thread
A section of material wide enough to cover the area of choice (This amount of fabric won't be available in our scraps unless you want to do some patchworking)
1-2 sheets of A4 paper
Take your jacket, flip it over and choose the panel you want to cover in sequins.
Layer a sheet of paper underneath that panel, and taking your needle (or any sharp object that won't damage the jacket), pierce along the seams and in the corners so that when you remove the jacket - you'll have an outline.
Remove the jacket and join the dots to form a square, marking which side of the pattern piece is top and bottom in case the panel shape isn't symmetrical/even.
Take this panel piece and pin to your sequin fabric, and then cut around the outside, being careful to move sequins so you don't snip any in half along the way.
Take this sequin panel piece, and pin it directly onto the jacket.
Stitch the panel in place with a running stitch, with thread that is the same colour as the sequin material, making sure the sequin material tucks under the seam of the jacket rather than flapping loose.
Put that bad boy on, and give it a shimmy shimmy shake - you just upgraded!!
A glue gun or fabric glue
A pair of old hoops
This offering is from our newest member of the Burnt Soul team, Katie!
Step 1: Cut 2 x fabric strips in long rectangles 2cm x 60cm (for large hoop earrings)
Step 2: Use strong glue to secure one end of the fabric to the top of one side of the earring near the clasp
Step 3: Wrap the fabric around the earring, overlapping the fabric so to not leave any gaps.
Step 4: Use the glue, adding blobs as you go along to make sure all of the fabric is secure
Step 5: When you get to the other end of the earring, make sure its all covered before cutting down the fabric to length and searing with glue once more.
A length of fluffy ribbon, approx 1m.
An old top
Measure around the length of the neckline with a tape measure.
Measure out the the length of the top in the fluffy ribbon.
Cut this length in the fluffy ribbon.
Begin to pin the fluff around the neck of the top.
Make sure the fluff fits the whole way round the neckline of the top before stitching.
Start to stitch the fluff onto the top, making sure the needle goes the middle of the ribbon every time to ensure it's fixed properly.
Ensure both ends meet and stitch over a couple of times to keep them sturdy.
Pop on your fluffy new top, grab your favourite pair of Burnt Soul leggings and take on the night!!
