Bring your needle up through the fabric and through the centre of the sequin, and then take the needle down at the top-left edge of the sequin. Working in an anti-clockwise direction, repeat this two more times around the sequin, with an even amount of spacing between each stitch (like the spokes of a wheel). Sequins can add a whole new dimension to your stitching! For a pretty finish, be sure to take your time and be consistent. q H l s t X 9 p M ; v h 3 f c 8 6 k e < n Backstitch in one strand 310 433 807 3799 403 357 168 236 2400 2602 1108 1713 black dark tan dark turquoise dark grey ––––– ––––– ––––– ––––– Backstitch in one strand DMC Light Effects E3852 dark gold ––––– Backstitch in two strands blanc 910 938 3766 3818 2 228 380 167 923 2402 1302 2005 1109 2704 white mint green brown turquoise dark mint green ––––– ––––– ––––– ––––– ––––– Backstitch in three strands blanc 2 2402 white ––––– French knots in one strand add seed beads to your design blanc 3766 2 167 2402 1109 white turquoise O How to...

Attach the bead to the design with the bottom arm of a cross stitch and then add the top arm of the stitch, making sure that one strand of thread falls on either side of the bead to help hold it upright and keep it secure.
