Here's an OOPS - I made this lovely T shirt and was going to embellish it with crystals and I burned a place in the design (gasp!) Now what to do? I haven't been able to find larger crystals in stores, so I guess I'll have to order from online. Ahhh, live and learn - P.S. I just purchased a hot fix applicator with 8 changeable tips in different sizes so this won't happen again. The design is from Stitch Delight SD608 Heirloom quilt blocks. Sorry for the fuzzy picture!

Ohh - buttons was something I had not thought about - maybe pearl buttons...

I love the look of this. You could just stitch a bullion rose over the hole. I could not find this block in SD608. I must be blilnd!

Did you try putting the design number in the homepage search box? If you still can't find it, send me a note and I'll send the url (I'm still not so sure what we can post....). Thanks for your comments and a bullion rose might just do the trick!

Very pretty! I like the idea of the larger single rose in the center.

It is lovely design and soft color. Glad it worked out for you that you can fix.

Well actually, the hole is on the upper left (see the dark circle), there is a crystal in the center and I was going to put several other crystals in the design spaces - but I'm getting lots of good suggestions and it is tooo pretty to not try and fix.

EK Success also makes one. It runs $25 at Joann and I got mine when I had a 50% off.

I have used firemountain before, however that joann coupon is in the mail and just down the street.

I bought the only one Joanne had and it was the single size (I didn't even know there were multiple sizes that could be purchased). The one with multiple tips that I just purchased was from fire mountain. And I really love the look of the crystals (sparingly) placed on designs. Thanks for looking.
