Let's get started!

I love using rhinestones to finish off a design or personalize a custom dress for a customer:

Rhinestones are great!

Personalize things using rhinestones

Grab your mylar sheet and a bag of jewels

Cut your Mylar Carrier sheet slightly larger than your design will be:

Cut the mylar larger than the design

Peel off the backing off the Mylar sheet and place it over your design, adhesive side up:

Important: Make sure you have REVERSED your image design....otherwise your design will be backwards when you flip it back over!

Adhesive side up, design reversed

Using small tongs or tweezers start placing your rhinestones on the design face down (glue backing is right side up):

Add stones!

I always start adding rhinestones from the outside in so that I end up with a perfect mirror image......

Start from the outside working inward when I add in the final rhinestone it fits perfectly:


Take the Mylar sheet with the rhinestones attached, turn it over and place onto your fabric:

Flip your mylar onto your fabric

Place a small cloth on top of the Mylar sheet and iron carefully to melt the glue:

Cloth on top and iron

Carefully peel off the Mylar sheet. I like to turn my garment inside out and iron it again to make sure all the rhinestones are adhered well:

Peel slowly

Be can hand drawn any design as well, large or small:

Hand drawn images work well, too!

Just make sure you are using low lead crystals if you are adding them to a child's clothing!

Be creative
