Welcome to another Work In Progress Wednesday at Saturday Sequins!
I haven't gotten around to finishing the star and the butterfly from this post, but I have made a lot of progress on the Mystery Project. I was a tease last Saturday and only showed you a small section, but today I'm going to play nice and share what I've done so far.
Have you guessed what it is yet? If not, I'm going to further confuse you by admitting that when I got to this stage, I thought I was done with the beading and only needed to apply the backing. And then I held it at a different angle and realized... this piece would look epic if I doubled it.
Yes, that means a lot more work! My impatient side isn't happy with me. My artistic side, however, knows that I have to do what it takes to make this project look its best, so I've already cut out the second piece.
Not only will this be my biggest and most time-consuming project so far, but it's also my first time sewing sequins on top of beadwork instead of sewing the beads around them. I like the way this looks! There's so much more sparkle.
(It's also a great way to hide mistakes -- I made one, and now I'm sort of glad I did.)
And that concludes this WIP Wednesday. More progress to come!

Thanks for reading, and as always, have a sequintastic day!
