New Project

I am going to embroider this design on the back of a white jacket that I purchased last summer. I have been looking for just the right design and this is it. This is called Mylar Roses Galore from Purely Gates Embroidery. I met Patricia Gates when she had a booth across from O'Brook Quilt Connection's booth in Houston. This pattern uses mylar--the stuff you use to wrap packages or put into fancy gift bags. The mylar gives the sparkle without using metallic threads as it lays under the design. The design is especially digitized so that the sparkly peeks though. I did have to order the design from a sewing shop in Texas called Little Stitches. I'll show you the jacket when I am finished.
