- Wedding: November 2011
I loved the idea of having a “Bride” hoodie or something along those lines to wear on our wedding day while getting ready. And I really loved the “Bride” hoodie from Victoria’s Secret. Only problem is that the only available hoodie from VS was long sleeved and I wanted short sleeved since we got married in Florida and I didn’t want to be too warm.
So I on ProjectWedding one day and found this tutorial*. I fell in love with the idea of a “Mrs. NewLastName” hoodie and decided, although I am the furthest thing from crafty, that I had to make one.
SUPPLIES* Hoodie (sweatshirt, tank top, pants…whatever you decide you want)* HotFix Rhinestones – I bought mine Swarovski crystals from this eBay seller* Mylar paper – I bought mine from this eBay seller * Clothes iron* 3 ring binder with clear pocket on the front* Tweezers
1. Create your template (Mrs. NewLastName and wedding date) in MS Word — use the landscape option to turn the page horizontal. I used 170 size font (MaryHelenJF) for the name and 70 size font (BlackJack)for the date. You can download almost any font online for free.
2. Once you are content with your wording and size, copy and paste it into “Paint” and rotate horizontal for the inverted image.
3. Print your image.
4. Slide print into cover of the 3 ring binder.
5. Cut Mylar paper just bigger than the size of the image.
6. Tape non stick side of Mylar paper to binder.
7. Peel backing off of Mylar paper so sticky side is exposed.
8. One by one, begin placing rhinestones on Mylar paper over pattern. Make sure to put the shiny side of the rhinestone down and the flat side up.
9. Once pattern is complete covered press firmly on the design to make sure rhinestones are secure.
10. Carefully and slowly remove Mylar paper from the binder.
11. Place the design, rhinestones down, on to your clothing item in the desired spot. Allow Mylar paper to stick to the clothing.
12. Place hot iron on design to afix it to the clothing. Keep the iron moving to avoid any burning. After a few minutes you can slowly peel back the Mylar paper to see if the rhinestones are stuck to the clothing. If not, continue ironing until completed.
* Because the tutorial is missing some photos I decided to repost the tutorial here. All credit for the tutorial goes to PW’s Mrs. Cleary.
