Hand-sequined vest patches on Flickr.This project was more than a labor of love. It was a labor of… labor. The needle piece uses untold thousands of 2mm sequins and that part alone took at least 20 hours. The ‘thread’ piece is 5mm sequins, so that went really fast. Like, maybe 30 minutes. The giddy and girlie pieces are made with 3mm holographic sequins, and each letter took about 60-90 minutes to complete. 
Attaching the patches to the vest was no picnic either. 
All told, I probably spent 35+ hours to complete this piece. But it’s worth it because I LOVE IT and I’m going to wear it all the time!
