I had this red blazer, and a couple of bags of pyramid studs.  Obviously, magic was destined to happen.  Lots of poking and bending later, and voila!


Now I've got to figure out what to do with the rest of the studs.  I've got to have some shorts around here somewhere.

I blogged this here.

That has brought your jacket from uninteresting to wow! It's totally changed the character of it, amazing.

That looks so cool!  And how easy to dress something up!  Also, that's the neatest dress form ever!

Do you need a special tool on fabric? I know I use studs on cards and I just poke them through and bend down on the back. Don't know if I can do the same with fabric?

I pre-cut little holes with an xacto knife, but only because the fabric was stretchy enough to make poking them through by hand obnoxious.  Otherwise no, no special tools.

I spread it out over a long time, because I have the attention span of a gnat.  I don't think it would have taken more than a few hours done straight.

I think some studs would look great around the middle/waist part like built in belt. Or maybe it will be too much. Either way it looks pretty awesome.
