Diamond Mesh Tube Top (or Bathing Suit Top) for Barbie -DIY No-Sew

Here's another fun no-sew Barbie top made from shiny diamond mesh ribbon. All that's required is some ribbon, a little string, velcro and hot glue. It took all of about 15 minutes to make, I think it turned out cute and love the straps. This blingy ribbon is a blast, I'm hoping Dollar Tree gets some in a wider version too.
Barbie says a girl can never have too much bling!

Instructions:
Cut a length of diamond mesh ribbon approximately 5" long, 24 rows.
Hot glue velcro to each end.
Tie string (I used clear fishing line) around center.

Cut a length of diamond mesh ribbon approximately 6 1/4" long, 30 rows.
Cut a single row off.
Lay center of single row on center of top. Wrap string around the center rhinestone on both sides to secure it to top. Tie good knot and cut ends of string off.

Put top on doll, wrap it snugly around her back, secure the velcro closed.
Lay straps over doll's shoulders to get idea of where they fall on the back.

I hot glued the straps right next to the velcro closure on each end. I also glued them 2 rhinestones deep. This meant I trimmed one rhinestone off of each side of the strap.
The top is now complete.
