Elegant Prom Shawl

Elegant prom shawlMaterials

  • 8 yds. 54" nylon tulle
  • 4 hanks of beads
  • 5 – 6 packages of sequins
  • Fabric glue

Optional Tools

  • Rotary cutter and mat
  • Rotary cutting grid


1. Cut one piece of tulle 2 yds. x 24". Fold long edges in half, pinning edges together.

2. Sew beaded trim around cut edges.

3. Cut remaining yardage into 48 2 yd. x 3" strips.

Hint: Carefully fold length over several times, keeping edges even; place cutting grid on top and use rotary cutter to cut several strips at once.

4. Glue sequins to one side of 12 strips & let dry.

5. When strips are dry, lay one sequin strip, sequin side down, on flat surface. Place 3 strips of plain tulle on top. Fold in half lengthwise, pinning to keep edges even. Set aside.

6. Repeat with remaining strips.

7. Using cutting mat as a guide, place shawl on mat and pin strip to bottom (bead side) of shawl and sew in place close to folded edge. Repeat with remaining strips with fold line at 1" markings.

8. When all strips are sewn on, cut through all thicknesses of strips (not the shawl) at 3/4" – 1" intervals.
