Swarovski Crystal Flatback Design with Step-by-Step Instructions
Swarovski Crystals you will need for this design project:
2038-5ss Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones In Jet Black
Supplies & Tools
Supplies:Fusible interlining, 22×15 cm, white Jumper, grey Lycra,22×15 cm, off white Sewing yarn, black
Tools: Iron Sewing machine Sheet of paper, A4 Transfer fi lm,17 x 12 cm Transfer sheet
This design project is for beginners and take a look at the text instructions at the bottom.
STEP 1: Print and cut out the text pattern shown in the illustration.
STEP 2: Create a “dialog box” of similar sizing as the pattern or simply print it out to correct size and stick the text pattern created in the previous step on it. Place the pattern onto a fabric piece and cut out the shape. Repeat this step with the fusible interlining piece.
STEP 3: Place the interlining in between the T-shirt and the fabric and iron to secure.
STEP 4: Place the transfer sheet over the pattern. Place the Swarovski Flat Backs No Hotfix over the pattern exactly over the text using tweezers.
STEP 5: Place the transfer film over the text and pull the transfer film back to get all the crystals on to it as shown in our illustrations with this step.
STEP 6: Stick the transfer film onto the T-shirt and iron it with hot iron so the hotfix glue on the back of the stones adheres to the fabric. Press the iron firmly down on top of the transfer for about 30 seconds.
STEP 7: Let the transfer cool and then remove the film slowly. If some of the stones do not stick to the fabric repeat this step until all the stones are securely affixed to the fabric.
Have fun adding sparkles to your wardrobe!
