When Crafting & Embroidery Collide

One of the hottest products in the home craft market is no doubt Siser®Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl. Sometimes as embroiderers, we want to give an extra shimmer or shine to our embroidery projects and we are not sure how or what to even use. In collaboration with Siser®, we have come up with Shimmer and Shine Vinyl Applique Kits which combine their gorgeous Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl with our KingStar Metallic Thread. Create gorgeous mixed-media embroidery projects with that WOW factor!

Shimmer and Shine lets you create spectacular applique with no cutting at all. Just place the provided glitter over an applique placement stitch, complete the satin stitches and pull away the excess from outside the applique shape.

These kits include:

  • (3) sheets of 12” x 12” Siser® Glitter Heat Transfer Vinyl
