DIY Sewing Swarovski Crystal on Hearts on Sweater with “Sparkling Love Patches”
I’ll be honest, I fell hard for this one! I saw it. I loved it. I want to make it!
Really and truly I LOVE this cute idea! There is certainly a little more love in the air with Valentine’s Day right around the corner and now there can be some extra love…well…on your elbos 🙂
Below are the pictures and step-by-step instructions, but keep in mind, you can also use Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks to embellish these hearts with sparkles. You can either iron them on or use the Bejeweler Hot Fix Tool using the 2078 Round Flatbacks with Hot Fix, or apply E6000 glue to adhere the 2058 Rhinestones with help from this time-saving, handy-dandy Krystal Katana tool.
Either way, you’ll shine this Valentine’s Day with sparkle & spirit!
