Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.
STEP 1

Cut a 5x20cm fabric piece and iron the lining onto it as shown in the illustrations. Draw a square pattern of 3.2x3.2cm or use the pattern in the illustrations and stick double sided tape to the back side. Using the pattern cut out 4 green, 3 petrol blue, 3 night blue, 1 fuchsia, 2 rose, 2 patterned blue, 2 Capri blue and 2 organza fabric pieces.
STEP 2

Take two fabric pieces, place one on top of the other and sew them together from the reverse side of each fabric. Make sure that there is a gap of 5mm from the edge and then flip them open towards the correct side of the fabric. Repeat this step to get a pattern similar to the illustrations.
STEP 3

Place a Dacron® piece 1mm larger than the fabric stitched together into rows. Stitch them together and cut off the extra Dacron.
STEP 4

Place the quilted piece from the previous step upside down onto the night blue fabric and cut it out 1mm larger than the quilted piece. Sew them together on the same stitched lines that the quilted fabric was sewn on as shown in the illustrations in order to understand where to start and end. Trim the Dacron from the corners as illustrated in this step. Cut 3mm off from the seams on three sides of the square. Turn the piece right side out as shown in the illustrations.
STEP 5

Stitch the open portion of the fabric piece with a sewing silk.
STEP 6

For Pattern B: In pattern B use organza blue in double layers. Repeat Steps 2 and 3. Insert Swarovski fancy stone art. 4447 12mm light sapphire between the layers of organza. Repeat Steps 4 and 5.

For pattern C: Repeat Steps 2 - 5 for pattern C.

For all three patterns: Cut 0.15mm nylon thread and stitch other Swarovski crystal onto the quilted pieces as shown in the illustrations with this step.
STEP 7

Cut 1m of Tigertail™ and string the Swarovski crystal in the order shown in the illustrations.
STEP 8

Insert the quilting parts and other Swarovski crystal in the same order as shown in the illustrations.
STEP 9

Cut a 60cm long ribbon piece. Fold it in a way so that one of its ends in 10cm long. Insert a crimping tube onto the Tigertail and then slide the Tigertail over the ribbon and back through the crimping tube. Crimp and cut off the extra Tigertail as shown in the illustrations.
