OK so you are here because one of these two (or both) reasons:
- You are tired of your rhinestoning looking like a toddler did it.
- You want to save time.
We have three options for different style & look of application.
Square/Diagonal/Line – This option is done in a square grid format, where it can be turned 45° for diagonal grid. Optionally a line of rhinestone placement holes can be used for a straight line, evenly spaced.
Radial – This option can be used to fill in an area with some rhyme or reason for placement, where the stones are built out from the center. This option is also useful for filling in shapes on your fabric i.e. star, moon, circle, triangle…you get the point. For interesting effects, use diminishing sizes in either direction: toward center or going away from center throughout your design, but pick one and stick to it for the duration of your shape being filled.
Gradient – This option can be used when you want larger, more dense stoning to start. It has six varying tiers of spacing. Fifth tier is designated as a freestyle finish. Ten rows can be used without a freestyle edge, giving a more straight finish. You may also want to diminish the size of the stone as you progress. If you decide that your rhinestones are not dense enough, you can shift the template directionally (right, left, etc.) and add more stones. Since the templates are clear, you can see placement when you are repositioning the template over existing fabrics and stones.
Please note that this listing does not include seamstress supplies for marking i.e. chalk or disappearing ink pen, nor does it cover decorations: rhinestones, studs, baubles, etc.
