Your Guide to Swarovski Sew-On Crystals

Are you looking for the perfect Swarovski crystals to use in your craft projects? While most crystals are designed to be either heated up or glued onto clothing and jewellery, some give you the opportunity to sew them on.

Swarovski sew on crystals are easy to use, they’re affordable and they have a wide range of uses. Here, you’ll discover everything you need to know about these awesome crystals.

How are sew-on crystals different?

There are two main differences between the Swarovski sew-on crystals and other crystals in the range. The first is the fact they feature tiny holes. These holes are what allow you to sew the crystals onto clothing or fabric. Traditional Swarovski crystals don’t come with holes so if you are looking for crystals that you can sew on, you need to be sure you’re choosing the right ones.

The second difference is obviously the way they are applied. You sew them, rather than glue them, onto your craft projects. This makes them much easier to use, and you won’t need to worry about them falling off as much as you might with glued-on crystals.

How can they be used?

You can use Swarovski sew-on crystals in numerous ways. The most common is to sew them onto clothing or embroidery. There are hundreds of different patterns you can use to glam up your clothes.

Another potential use is to create jewellery with them. Bracelets are especially easy to create. You simply sew the crystals onto a suitable thread; you can find an example tutorial here.

There are so many ways they can be used, so it’s worth doing a little research and finding tutorials online for inspiration.

Things to consider

When using Swarovski sew-on crystals, the best type of thread to use is a synthetic multifilament thread. You’ll want to avoid using pure cotton or monofilament thread as both feature very limited resistance to abrasion.

Another thing to familiarise yourself with, if you’re new to sew-on crystals, is the different sewing styles you can use. Each has its own pros and cons, so understanding the differences between them will ensure you choose the right stitching type for your project.

Overall, Swarovski sew-on crystals are perfect for embellishing clothing and for glamming up embroidery projects. While they can also be used for jewellery making, generally the non-sew-on crystals tend to be easier to work with. So, if you’re a complete beginner, it’s worth starting out with clothing-related projects.
