from Boca Raton Florida, has a great tip if you're in a hurry!
She likes to embellish her quilts with Swarovski Crystals, so she needs
to adhere quit a few. She places the Crystal down on the quilt where

the top of the crystal. The crystal and the glue will heat up, and the
glue will melt. Carole finds this is a much quicker method.
Is there a certain pattern you would like to lay the crystals down in? Like
a butterfly or flower? There are many markers on the market that wash away or
just fade away after a few days. Also, you could use an iron on pencil
marker. You mark the back of the pattern, with dots, where you would like the
crystals. Lay the marked design on the fabric and press with an iron, voila!
the pattern is transferred to the fabric in a wash away pencil. You could also
just poke a whole through the pattern from the front.

childrens' coloring books, wow what fantastic designs you can get and simply
just trace them using a fine washable/fadeway marker of your choice - the
outlines last long enough to put Hot Fix Crystals and the finished product
yields a much better blouse/bag/shorts then you can purchase at retail for lots
of green more.
I picked up a coloring book of Frogs, they really are
neat and cannot wait to get a couple on my T-shirts to play golf in.
