DIY Embellished Sweatshirt

I love spring weekends and the outdoors. It's always been a dilemma what to wear to stay within my style,  without overdressing. Recently, I spotted trendy embellished sweatshirts, first worn by supermodels and then adopted by public. As the prices skyrocket for these little closet treasures, I thought it shouldn't be too hard to do in my studio for a fraction of the cost.

You will need:
1. Short-sleeve sweatshirt (I bought mine here)
2. Sew-on rhinestones (similar here)
3. Sewing supplies (needle, matching thread, scissors)
4. Ruler and pencil

Step 1.
Lay the sweatshirt out flat, and using rhinestones create a desired pattern. Using a ruler and pencil mark the dots where the rhinestones will be placed.

Step 2.
Sew on the rhinestones one by one, first using the smaller pieces, then larger. This process maybe a little painstaking, and took me a couple of evenings. I utilized the time I spend watching a favorite movie, so sewing those little sparkles and enjoying a show wasn't so boring.
Tip: I placed a piece of cardboard inside the sweatshirt so that catching a stitch would be easier.

Love your creation! And thanks for the DIY! I'm not sure if I have enough patience to do this so if I tried it I'd probably lessen the embellishments ;)
