The Magic of Using Mylar in Embroidery & Quilting Projects

Mylar is a polyester film that will add pizzaz to your embroidery and quilting projects.   Its easy to use and the end result adds  a sparkle and shine that will uplift your projects.

You may also know Mylar as foil craft paper such as is used in  those foil helium balloons.

It comes in a variety  of colours so you can mix and match it to suit what you working on. Use contrasting cotton or really add some depth by using a similar thread to the Mylar that you are using.

My talented embroidery loving daughter in law Stacy introduced me to Mylar and I just knew I had to share it with all of you.
