Let me explain one of my attached pics better (it's the first red and blue drawing that illustrates the side view of a running stitch):

On how to stitch your sequins...start with a single needle/thread, come up through your fabric/pattern, up through a sequin, through a matching seedbeed, back down through the sequin, and down through the same hole you punched in your fabric/pattern. Pull it snug. Now come up though your fabric again and repeat the process, remembering to evenly space your stitches so that your sequins will look the way you'd like them too. After about 5 or 6 stitches, you'll see a nice line forming. You can also sew curves and corners! Hope this helps.

I think I might finally be getting this, so you use the bead as an anchor between the fabric and the sequin? and this prevents the sequin from going "all over" right?
