What do you need to make DIY Rhinestone Fringe Shorts?
Rhinestone fringe trim.
You can get rhinestone fringe trim by the yard on Amazon.
To make the 2 different styles of shorts in this tutorial I bought 1 yard.
Needle and thread, or glue.
Thread will help you attach the rhinestone fringe trim to the fabric in a lasting and professional way.
The best part? Having the option to remove it whenever you want without damaging the fabric by simply cutting the stitches that are holding the trim.
However, if you want a permanent (and faster) alternative, you can use the e6000 glue to attach the trim to the shorts.
Fabric marking pen
This baby is a must in your crafts/sewing tool kit! It makes such thin and precise lines and the ink disappears with water, aka you can use a damp cloth to rub it out.
This brand is better than many others I've tried and it works perfectly to mark exactly where you want to place the rhinestone trim on your shorts.
You’re going to need scissors to trim threads and also cut the rhinestone fringe trim to whatever length you need it.
Cutting threads can be a mundane task, but you can make it cute with these gorgeous rose gold scissors.
