DIY Sequin Pouch

As I mentioned yesterday, I'm drawn to the deco-look of geometric shapes and patterns partnered with glitzy sequins. A small, spangly pouch is my way to play with the style. It's just the right size for all my essentials for an evening out.

Tools and Materials:
Zippered pouch
Aleen's Jewel-It glue
Sequin trim (2 colors in 2 yards each)
Black ribbon
Scissors
Binder clips



Note: My pouch was made from mesh, so I covered one side with black fabric, and then stuffed the pouch with a plastic baggie filled with newspaper to keep shape without letting glue seep through the mesh. 

To get my triangle pattern, draw a "V" in glue, making diagonal lines from each corner of the pouch and meeting at the bottom.


Stick in the sequins, and cut the trim to size.


Add another "V" of glue and sequins in the next color inside the first "V." Repeat to fill up the triangle.



For the sides, I glued in place single lines of sequins along the triangle.


In small areas or bald spots, glue down loose sequins. Don't worry about the glue showing-- it dries clear.


To cover up the loose ends, I glued black ribbon around the sides and bottom of the pouch, and clipped down to dry.


Just a little wham-glam-thank-you-ma'am.
