Beaded Fashion Appliques Make a Dull Sweater a Sassy One!

This sequined beaded sweater began as an inexpensive bargain at Target.


What makes the sweater SASSY is the addition of six beaded applique motifs from our Fashion Embellishment category.

The sweater is then lined with wax paper.

There were several ideas for placement.  In the end the “collar” idea was the most popular.

Even though the appliques are glued in place, it is a good idea to do a little extra hand stitching.  This ensures that the applique edges do not catch on anything.  You can also add a few extra beads to your design while hand stitching.


The appliques are available in several colours including gold.
