OOOoooOOOo sparkly!

My friend Nancy gave me a spool of sparkle/metallic thread the other day - I wasn't sure how easy it would be to sew with, so I made a couple of fabric gift bags and meander stitched on them with the thread for a decorative touch.  Surprisingly, the thread was as easy to work with as regular cotton or poly thread - I used the regular size 12 needle in the machine, used regular thread in the bobbin, and did some easy swirls on the fabric before stitching the pieces together.  The glitter doesn't show up very well in the photograph because I don't have a fancy camera, but you can take my word for it that it's PURTY!!  She also gave me a spool of black glitter, and I know exactly what I'll be using it for ;)

  1. I can sorta see the sparkly. I haven't played with fancy threads too much. I did do some couching with it a time or two.
    Love that purple fabric. I have that particular piece in a bunch of colors. It's a great blender.
