Hot Fix Metal Trim Embellished Leggings
Comfortable and fashionable – leggings are the hot in item. And while they are a great fashion statement, you don’t want to look like everyone else. A great way to customize your leggings and have you stand out is to add metal studs.
For this project I used:
I pair of black leggings
14 - Square 7 mm silver hot fix metal studs
28 - Round 6 mm silver hot fix metal studs
Hot fix tool
Prewash your leggings before you start. If you leggings are made of a thinner material, place a piece of wax paper between layers to prevent gluing both sides of the legs together. Fold the bottom part of the legs in half so that the outside part of the legging, the part by your ankle, makes a fold. Use a piece of white chalk to mark the edge. This will serve as a guide line to keep your design straight.
Unfold the legs and lay flat. Using the chalk lines as guides, lay out the metal studs to the design of your choice.
I like just a little bit of bling so I embellished the bottom 3 inches. When you are happy with your layout, heat your hot fix tool.
Gently press down on the metal studs for 12-15 seconds. Repeat process. If you are using an iron, set iron to the hottest setting without steam. Place a piece of white paper over design to prevent scorching. Gently press down for 10-15 seconds. DO NOT SLIDE the iron as this may move your metal studs.
Allow to cool.
Stunning eye catching leggings to wear at your next event and will guarantee that you to stand out.
