Rhinestone Bride Hoodie

When I first came across Bride hoodies I knew I would be making one. I ordered all my rhinestone from Dreamtime Creations in the swarovski hotfix 10mm and 12mm. I followed the same directions I used to make the Bridesmaid's Newsletter Initial. Just like I did when I made the BM's initials, I forgot to print my image mirrored. When I flipped it over I was able to see through it well enough, so I didn't re-print it.

I purchased a sleeveless racerback white hoodie from Max Rave. Since I am getting married in OH in Aug, I figured I was going to be hot as it was, I wasn't going to add to it hehe.

First I laid the rhinestone upside down on laminate tape (couldn't find mylar paper)
Then I ironed it on the pocket of my hoodie. Because I got a sleeveless hoodie I couldn't fit it on the chest area, like I wanted to.

All finished! Took less than 20 min to complete! It does take a lot of rhinestones to make, so buy a lot more than you think you will need. I ended up using all of the rhinestones I had. I was going to make Bridesmaids shirts for them to wear, but I think I will buy them from michae'ls in the cheaper rhinestones.

Invitations MAILED!

Rob and I went out this morning and dropped off our invites at the post office. I can't wait to start getting RSVP's in the mail! It's going to be exciting to see who will be coming to the wedding and sad to see who can't make it.

all 55 ready to go :)
