Merry Mylar

NEW THIS WEEK - November 10th, 2010


More Merry Mylar

Free Project Instructions!

Add a whole new sparkle to your Christmas with merry embroidery designs that incorporate Mylar!


Two weeks ago, amidst the opulence of the new Christmas Victoriana designs, Mylar made its Embroidery Library debut with a collection of shining classic Christmas motifs and glimmering in-the-hoop ornaments. Mylar, sold as "foil tissue" at craft and party stores (and also used in foil balloons), can be used as applique in these specialized designs that are digitized with intricate, sheer fills to let the pretty metallic surface shine through.

Now, an adorable set of eight new sparkling Christmas critters will bring even more glitz and glamour to your holiday celebrations. Stitch them on stockings, sweatshirts, and all sorts of home decor that will dazzle friends and family!


Click here for instructions (easy, just like applique!), and use these designs to bring lots of sparkle to Christmas creations.

Shiny Mylar material adds sparkle and glitz to special new Christmas designs. Learn the basics of using Mylar as an applique, and see how to construct shimmering in-the-hoop Mylar ornaments!

Embroidery Library stitcher Darlene sent in her fantastic Mylar project pictures. She used the in-the-hoop Mylar ornament designs (above) and made a wonderful Christmas wall hanging.

The soft, white background fabric gives a wintry feeling that is warm and inviting. The ribbons on the ornament adds a wonderful three-dimensional effect. And the "frame" of shiny, sparkling fabric -- the project just says "wow!" Thank you, Darlene, for sending your wonderful photos!

We'd love to see your project photos! Send photos of your finished work to stitch@emblibrary.com.
