Ok, my last attempt to restart this blog with something spectacular clearly failed, so lets try again. Remember, when I went fabric shopping for the
boring white dress for my daughter’s First Communion?
Let me tell you, ia couple of girls (and one boy) have experienced the best day of their life since then. Because I have made a couple of tops not only out of the rainbow sequins but also out of the more neutral blue/green ones. Am I exaggerating as usual? Possibly. But I did safe at least one girl’s birthday when all the presents were apparently a huge disappointment, until she opened my gift, a top featuring a shiny star.

Another, slightly younger girl got a Rainbow Fish…

I guess the sequins are ideal for a fish, but I also really liked my daughter’s butterfly.
Clearly all these shiny applications seem to be for girls only but as you know, I don’t like these stereotypes and clearly many boys love those interchanging pictures too but they are just a little less into hearts and butterflies and more into cake palette knives.

To be honest, all these shiny sequins got me slightly infected and I was close to make one for myself but in the end I am too lazy, it is far too much work to prepare the application. I will have to make one last one I guess. For the little one. I will hopefully be able to keep my promise otherwise it will be a severe case of neglected third child syndrome.
Hmm, I have just been proofreading this post and I have to say, as shiny as the pictures are, it is still not very spectacular. I guess, I will have to try harder.
