Baby Bump Shirt Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

This cute maternity shirt lets you show off your bump with stylish Swarovski crystals. It's perfect for a shower gift and takes no time to make! Just choose a plain maternity shirt to decorate.

Step one:
Choose your desired font to type the words "Baby Bump." Size it to fit your shirt and decide where it will sit. Find a small footprint design to use as a template that correlates with your chosen font as well. Print out your pieces to use as a reference later. Measure the height and width of your text and use light-adhering masking tape to create a frame around the desired area you will bejewel. This will serve as a guideline for the height and width of your image on the shirt. Place a barrier behind the shirt to keep the area smooth and prevent the heat from going through. We recommend using parchment paper or something thicker such as a fabric cutting board.

Step two:
Position the Swarovski hotfix XILION rose flatbacks in Light Sapphire on your shirt to spell out the words. You may use various sizes to fit appropriately until you are happy with the arrangement. Use your BeJeweler® to affix your rhinestones to the shirt. We recommend doing the first letter and last letter of each word to get started. For help using a BeJeweler® Pro visit the Handy Tips section of our Learning Center.

Step three:
Place your foot templates onto your shirt just to the left of your words. Lay your Swarovski Hotfix flatbacks in Air Blue Opal to fill in each foot shape in a random fashion. We used a SS34 flatback for the big toe, SS16 flatbacks for the three middle toes and an SS10 flatback for each little toe on the end. Bejewel each foot.
