    Has anyone or Is anyone going to attempt to create their own rhinestoned design to iron onto tanks and T's?..

     

    I've been looking at tanks to buy for me and all of my girls.. They seem to run about $20 each for the ones I like, so today I had the bright idea to attempt to create my own.

     

    Would love to hear tips and see the pics of what you have created. :o)

      Hello!!! I also plan on making my own... well somewhat. End of season right now so im gonna buy my tanktops soon... probably just the ribbed tanks from oldnavy in the charcoal grey. Then im gonna buy the premade rhinestone transfers... either from etsy or ebay... ithink it will work out to about $10 a shirt!

        I got tank tops on sale at old navy at the end of summer on sale and bought these iron ons from etsy seller http://www.etsy.com/...hinestoneWishes

         

         

        They were super easy to make and it cost me about $12 each tank to make :) I will try to post pictures of them tonight!!

          How much are the tanks at Old Navy?  I didn't think of looking there!.. I got stretchy tanks from Body Central.. But I'm thinking they may not work with the designs due to the stretchyness. :-/

           

          I tried to check out the etsy seller.. But she has her store down to catch up on orders. :o(

            MissBubbles The ones I was looking at are $8 each in canada. But now that I think about it they are stretchy and ribbed. Not sure how the transfers will work on that. Speckles We're the tank tops you got ribbed? I was wanting the ribbed racerback tanks but I'm not sure if they will work

              Sorry, stupid question... what does ribbed mean?..

               

              I love my stretchy tanks.. I got them for $2 each at Body Central.... :o) I'm going to attempt one and see how it turns out. Fingers crossed!.. But I'm sure I'll need a less stretchy type. :o(

                They are ribbed and worked out fine! They will serve their purpose for photos and the girls getting ready!  I think I paid $6 for each of them at the end of the season with 20% off!

                 

                These are the tanks I bought

                    Ah i have no idea how to describe ribbed.. its just the way the fabric is... you probably have ribbed tanks as most racerback tanks are ribbed.

                     

                    And $2 tanks!!! thats awesome! I wish i could find some that cheap. And as long as it turns out that it will last a couple days thats really all you need. cause really if your writing bridemaid on them how many times will the girls actually wear them? a couple times throughout the week maybe... then after the wedding probably never again

                      Here's a totally DIY tutorial I ran across if you don't want to buy the iron ons pre made!  http://kayemgiweds.w...one-bride-tank/
