Instructables

Step 1: Materials needed

-Studs
-Article of clothing
-Something to put holes in fabric (in this case- tweezers).
-Something to fold stud prongs down (I used my thumbs, and by the end, they were soooo sore. I suggest using needle-nose plyers as I attempted to use my tweezers and ended up cutting myself when they slipped off of the prongs)
-Anything with a straight-edge, such as a ruler, to get a straight line of studs.


***Studsandspikes.com offer a great deal for getting a bag of 100 "English '77" silver cone studs, either standard or tall, for only the cost of shipping. 

Here's my Instructable on how to get their free studs-
Getting Free Studs

Step 2: Figuring out your desired pattern

You may want to lay your studs out to get an idea of how many studs you will be using and the pattern you will make. Look at some pictures of other peoples vests and jackets to get an idea of how close you want your studs. Below is my vest before studding, and then two of other people's vests/jackets I found through Google to give you an idea of different spacing.

I shall be one step closer to becoming Neil from "The Young Ones."
You mean Vivian, Neil was the hippie. :D But to be Vivian, you would have to stud your forehead as well.
