    Hi!

    I tried searching for the answer to this question (so as to not be asking a question that has probably been asked over and over and over) but I was not able to find the answer, so I have to ask. Sorry if this has been asked a bazillion times...


    Where can I find information about how to make rhinestone shirts myself? Where do I find the rhinestones? How do I attach them? Glue? I've seen mention of hot fixing them?


    Any help would be truly appreciated. Please! :goodvibes

    You can buy rhinestones most anywhere. Walmart sells them, Michaels, Hobby Lobby and most craft stores have them. You can find them online...here is one website:
    www.fbcdesigns.com

    You will need to purchase Mylar Rhinestone Transfer Paper. It is clear and you can place it over your design to place the rhinestones where you want them.

    I suggest buying the hotfix rhinestones.

    There are a ton of videos for "how to" on youtube.com
    Here is one for how to make the crystal transfer:

    Here is one for how to iron on to the t-shirt:

    You will have to be careful with washing the shirts as you can loose the rhinestones during washing if they aren't set properly.
