Maximize Project Potential With Mylar

Machine embroidery with mylar makes your projects pop. Plus, right now, you can get Volume 1 of Kimberbell’s mylar card series at 25 percent off!

Now is the perfect time to start embroidering cards for the Christmas season and birthdays. Kimberbell’s Dimensional Mylar Applique and Cards, Volume 1, set is so versatile, you can make your own cards or make sets of cards for wonderful gifts.

Simply stitch light snowman or flower pot embroidery on card stock, then add 3D snowflakes and flowers on top. 

Give the card a dual purpose by making the snowflake as an ornament. Use scrapbooking pop dots to attach the snowflakes to the card. That way, they can be removed and hung on the tree.

These designs can be stitched as freestanding applique that can be used as embellishments for wreaths, hair, and other accessories. They can also be stitched directly to shirts, quilts, and totes, just as you would any other applique design.

Mylar gives machine embroidery designs an extra bit of sparkle and shine without overwhelming the piece. Purely Gates Mylar is iridescent, so it matches and reflects the colors of whatever fabrics and embroidery threads that are nearby.

Although mylar can be used as material in standard appliques, it is perhaps best utilized when stitched with designs that have been digitized especially for mylar. In addition to Kimberbell Designs, Purely Gates also has a variety of designs that include light stitching over mylar. 

Add some sparkle to your embroidery!
