Default Rhinestones on bows?

I think these bows are really cute. I think she used to be a member on here, but not sure I've seen her around in a long time. Do you think these are just the iron-on rhinestone letters you can get at HL, etc? Or are these hand done with a hot fix tool? If you look close, you can see some adhesive so I'm not sure how they are applied. There's no way I could apply any type of glue as nice and evenly as this looks.

That is so cute!!!! And what a great way to personalize something when you don't have (and can't afford lol) an embroidery machine!!

They look like adhesive rhinestone letter stickers. I'd be worrying about those coming off!

Funny you should mention that old embroidery machine! I bought one in May and can't figure out how to use it.

I rhinestone my daughters costumes and use e 6000 by hand. It dries clear, stays on, and you only need a tiny bit.

Definitely looks like the rhinestone stickers - I wonder if you put glue on the back (just a little bit), if that would help hold it on?

Hmmm, everyone thinks they are stickers. I wouldn't have thought that. Does anyone think the iron-ons would work? I think WM sells them. I guess I could get some and test it out.

I have used the stickers and used some hot glue but u have to be quick. I use a tooth pick grab some from the hot glue gun you need to be ready to put some on the rhinestone and then straight goes to the bow. I use some twisers to hold the rhinestone.

I do want to get some hotfix rhinestones.

I have used hot fix and regular flat backs with E6000 I find it easier just to use e6000

I have used the E6000 for dance costumes too, they stay on very well!! But funny you should post a pic of these. I was just looking at these the other day and made me think of an idea. I have a ton of iron on alphabets, the really small ones from HL an I thought I would give it a try. they look really cute. I only have the pink letters but am going back to get the other colors. I will go take a pic and post in just a few.Picture 241.jpgI made one on a FOE headband too but my daughter is wearing it and she's not home. It turned out super cute too. I think it works if you don't have an embroidery machine! Although my mom has one its just a lot to get out and get together if all you're going to do is some monograms. thats all we have learned to do on it so far!
