    The sequin skirt might be use as a pillow cover? The mesh tank could be made into a grocery bag?

      @Marknmary I thought the very same thing! The tank only needs a seam sewn across the bottom to work. Maybe reinforce the seam with some bias tape for extra strength.

    Of same mind! Chic stretchy grocery bag with mesh, cute cushion with sequin cloth, or fun gym bag.

    Although sequins do shed, it is possible to cut shapes from the garment to embellish a T-shirt. Bling a denium jacket or a pair of jeans.

    you can make sequin vest and a matching purse. wear with black t shirt and pants or skirt. Jazz it up!!!

    you can even make a tank top and wear with pencil skirt or jeans

    My first thought was to make a purse/handbag with the pink sequins top and to use the mesh top as a grocery/beach bag. Not sure what your sewing skills are, but you could take a strip of either and add a decorative edge to a shirt, pants, shorts, or skirt. Actually you could use strips to decorate pretty much anything. You could use the pink one to make a book cover or a cover for a kindle or some other device like that. I have tons others that sound weird when I type it, but looks cute when I picture it in my head! lol

    I agree about the gray tank. You don't even have to sew it at the bottom. Make a knot, makes a great little bag to roll up and keep in your purse.

  • Sandra Sandra on Apr 05, 2016
    If your bedroom needs a punch of color, you could make the sequined top into a throw pillow cover.

    The mesh one would be nice over another, say, white pillow. It reminds me of fish net, could you use it somehow in a sea setting, with shells or fishing theme? Over a lamp shade?

    • Lisa Lisa on Apr 05, 2016
      @Thank You Lori Wow! The fishing theme is something I never thought of. I have tons of sea shells.

  • You could make an amazing sequin cushion! Or you could make a shopping bag out of the net style top. A little like a crochet/mesh shopping bag :)

  • You could also make some sequin placemats for your table out of the sequin top! Ruffled blog have a great tutorial -- http://ruffledblog.com/diy-sequin-placemats/

    Frame the blouse shadowbox style !

    Cut it up and make a scarf to wear with something else.

    I have a gold sparkly top that I will never fit into again. I have a ceramic type picture frame with a 2-inch border. I was thinking of using spray adhesive to make a sparkly picture frame for my (kind of) over-the-top, anything goes (terra cotta/black/turquoise/gold French flavor) half bath.

    How about cutting strips fold face to face and stitch. Make long strips. Turn right side out. Make three long strips. Braid to make a very fashionable belt.

  • Henrietta Henrietta on Apr 13, 2016
    would make beautiful headbands, or small purses as gifts

  • Cyndie S Cyndie S on Apr 13, 2016
    Make a pillow with the pink sequinned top and a tote bag with the mesh top.

  • Tamara K Tamara K on Apr 14, 2016
    How about a really cool pillow or set of pillows? Layer the sparkly skirt under the mesh shirt?

  • Connie Phillips Connie Phillips on Apr 14, 2016
    What a timely subject. I was just about ready to throw out a sequin dress that was attacked by a vacuum cleaner. Sad story now has a happy ending. Small purses, headbands, pillows coming right up!(it was a long dress)

    • Lisa Lisa on May 03, 2016
      @Connie Phillips Man those vacuum cleaners are killers. LOL I would love to see what you make with the dress.

  • Lisa Lisa on Apr 21, 2016
    Wonderful ideas. Thank you, Henrietta!

    Lamp shade anyone? .I don't know the link ,but there is a post of covering a lampshade with a knit sweater, your dress,top should work just as well, it all depends on your taste .have a ball!

    You could hang the netting on the wall with seashells or drape it from your window.

    Why not make a pillow from this lovely fabric.
