How to iron on rhinestone transfers to your hoodie sweatshirt?
For those of you who love rhinestones on clothing and/or just about anything and everything,
this hub is for you. I don.apos;t know about you, but I sometimes get a little agitated when I see
how expensive it can be for something with rhinestones on it. I have seen hoodies, belts and
jeans cost a mini fortune. Of course, most of the cost goes to the crystals if they are Swarovski
and the labor, especially if there are a lot of rhinestones to glue on. However, the mark up can
be a little ridiculous. Swarovski rhinestones are the best in my opinion. They come in too many
colors to count and in various cuts and sizes. They also sparkle and shine the best. If you want
something to stand out, definitely go with the Swarovski.
Ironing on rhinestones is the easiest and fastest way to make your clothes and accessories
sparkle. You can find single rhinestones and crystals that are iron on to get the look you want.
There is also my favorite, iron on rhinestone transfer which could be words, numbers, symbols
and other fabulous designs. You can find pretty much any design of rhinestone transfer you
want already assembled for you and ready to iron on. Below is my step by step guide to easily
transform your t-shirt, hoodie, belt, or even purse from bland to glam.
If you are going to use a new item of clothing or fabric to iron on a transfer, always make sure
to first wash the item so that there is no future shrinkage or color fading after the rhinestones
are in place. I am using a purple hoodie sweatshirt.
Pick out your iron on rhinestone motif and then decide where you would like to place that motif.
I chose to place mine at the top right front of the sweatshirt. Make sure you are happy with
where you want it placed, once it’s ironed on, there is no turning back.
Take the white backing off of the iron on rhinestone transfer and place it sticky side down on
your garment or fabric. Make sure it is on there smooth and that it is not moving around. You
want it to iron on exactly where you want it.
Now we are ready for ironing. Make sure that before you plug in your iron, there is no water in it.
You don’t want to use water or steam when ironing on transfers. Next, you will want to find
something to place over the rhinestone transfer while ironing. You can use a piece of cotton,
fabric or maybe an old t-shirt. You don’t want to use anything heavy and you don’t want to use
anything that will ruin your iron, so cotton would be perfect.
Make sure the iron is on a medium setting and remember to make sure that the steam setting
is off. Place the iron on top of your cotton piece that is on top of the transfer and press down
for 30 seconds. Turn your item to the other side and hold the iron down on that side for about
20 seconds. Then turn your item back to the right side and place the iron on it for another 20
seconds. Let it cool for a few minutes. After a few minutes, it’s time to make sure that all of the
rhinestones have been set on your item.
Slowly and carefully start pealing the plastic cover off of your item. You want to make sure that
all of the rhinestones have set into your item. There might be a few stragglers, as soon as you
see one or more rhinestones that have not stuck, carefully place the plastic cover back down
on your item and place the pillowcase back over it and hold down your iron over it for another
20-30 seconds. Let cool another minute or two, and then try to slowly and carefully peel the
plastic cover off again until all the rhinestones are attached to your garment or fabric. That is
the last and final step. Make sure you let your item fully cool before you wear it, 10 minutes
or so. Also wait at least 24 hours before washing again if you need to. I suggest that the next
time you do wash your garment or fabric, use the gentle cycle so that there is more of a
chance of the rhinestones not falling off. Also hang dry. The rhinestones will sometimes fall off
with use and washing, however if you take care of it, they will last longer.
