Beading Practice Kitty Noggin Part 2

Shiny eyes kitten Noggin
Class this week taught me how to add shisha embroidery to my art. Adding shiny objects like mirrors and sequins to embroidery like they do in India.

Shiny eyes
Now my kitty has shiny sequin eyes and a small smile. I practiced a few times on scrap fabric and the sequin kept falling out. Then POOF I got the technique all of a sudden. It's kind of like backstitching. Worked up pretty quickly :)

The sequin's package says they are washable so I am going to attach a few to a t-shirt for fun soon.
