Learn how to make these gold sequin flags for little ones to use at a party or wedding.
Sewing needle and cotton thread
Gold sequin ribbon, 45cm
3 gold and white ribbons, 30cm each
Wooden dowel 300mm x 6.35mm (approximate size)
How to make
Draw a triangle on paper, about 15cm x 20cm x 20cm.
Cut out and use this as your template.
Place template on calico and trace around it, so when you remove the template you have the shape of a triangle penciled on your calico.
Flip template over so it mirrors the triangle you have just drawn, and repeat the above step – it will look like a squashed diamond (see image below). Cut out your diamond with fabric scissors. Fold in half to create a triangle, with the point on the the right-hand side.
Unfold the triangle and sew sequin ribbon on top of the letter you have drawn with a simple running stitch, being sure to sew each sequin individually to make sure it’s secure.
