So, if you follow me on instagram and twitter you probably noticed I've been going crazy on studding everything and anything I own. hee.lol. No, not really. But still. This is why I own a lot of basic pieces - solids mostly. So I can attack it with studs and whatnot~
Among the stuff I attacked are my knit beanie, my knit cardigan. I mostly just did the pockets.
And I found this shirt on clearance that has a pleather detailing on the top. I decided to spruce it up by adding studs!
Some tips and tricks I learned when working with studs and where to BUY studs.
-Ebay, I buy all my studs off ebay, thats where you can also buy bulk of some screw back spikes. I have an order of CROSS studs coming in, in the mail as well as some spikes too. Some sellers, if you look real hard even carry Butterfly and skull studs. Some in different colors too.
-I also tried using those 3D nail art stuff, they dont have a clamp on the back and you'd need tacky glue to glue them onto clothes.
-Studding works best on KNITS and pleather fabric. If you're working with studding leggings. Don't do what I did:
And that was, studding the shit out of it, Directly on. .___. Thats a major no-no. Clearly. As when the leggings are stretched out, the backing tends to rip the knit. OOOh noooo. But theres an easy fix:
You can get these iron on patches practically anywhere, Target, Walmart, Walgreens, etc. At the sewing/repair section.
Next suggestion is, if you DO want to stud the crap out of your leggings, is to do a patch. Like so:
