It is not difficult to add impact to your patriotic projects with these easy ideas.
Before you say NO entirely, take time to read this blog for tips on taming metallic thread. Often the brand is indicative of success and many boast great success with King Star metallic thread.
HotFix crystals, particularly Swarovski brand, add a definite sparkle to machine embroidery. Add them to the center and ends of the fireworks bursts, like this one featured in the 4th of July set from Kreations by Kara. If you do not have a wand to apply hotfix crystals, just glue them in place.
The 4th of July Appliscape from Anandas Divine Designs is such a lovely project. Consider stitching part of the applique, in this case, the corner stars using GlitterFlex. It adds just the right pop of sparkle and stands out from the background.
GlitterFlex fuses in place and can be laundered so you can applique on shirts, pillow tops or totes.
