How hard is it to make a shirt with rhinestones? I'm thinking it would be a pain to get everything lined up straight. I'd love to do words but I'm thinking it's a bit of $ wasted if its hard.

Its so easy! I blinged up a tee-shirt last year and before I knew it I was looking through my closet for anything else I could add bling to! In fact as soon as I can find the time I'm going to add some rhinestones to the pockets of at least one pair of my jeans...

Thanks for the link, I was wondering too...
Question - how do I know which size rhinestones to order?
I see they have many sizes and I wonder if all sizes work with all the designs? or do you enter the size when you cut the template?

I use them to make my daughter's holiday shirts each year. I would buy the tool with the sticky side though because I have a hard time with the gentle brushing and getting them all into place. You also need the sticky transfers tape if you want your letters to line up correctly. Each design will tell you how many stones you need and the specific size. Most designs will say that they can not be resized without distortion. The designer software will allow you to make your own shapes in whatever size you select. I have purchased stones from Michaels in a pinch, but they need to be self adhesive (you take an iron to set them). It is really easy once you understand the steps involved.
