For the last 3 days sewing sequins onto this jacket was my life.

So here is the result of three days of relentless sequin-sewing...
 The jacket was £1 in a charity shop, and though a lovely shape and pleasantly grandad-ish I wanted to give it an extra bit of bedazzlement. The sequins cost altogether about £5 and I still have loads left over that I plan to glue onto some mary-janes.
I searched for a long time for a suitable phrase for the jacket,  finally I decided on ' The future revolves around you, here, now so do good. a lovely inspirational quote from my beloved Doctor who
 As I am not the best embroiderer, the sewing isn't the best but I like to think that the lose threads give the jacket character.
