TEN {Sequin Birthday Shirt}

Each year we make a birthday shirt. Just to mix it up a bit I ocassionaly trial different types.

This year we tried sequins! I had sequin ribbon here and shirt was $3 from Target. Done!

Sequins were a bit more fiddly to work with than I thought - you have to do a stitch behind every sequin to 'capture' the thread holding them together. My writing turned out a bit wonkier than I wanted as they moved around a bit while sewing but Miss 10 was happy with the outcome.

^^ Heres an example that I was working on laying out the ribbon in running writing. Turned out this shirt was too tight. Lucky we checked before I spent all the time sewing the ribbon!
