Stained Glass Mylar Machine Embroidery Design by Lisa Shaw for Embrilliance

Free Project:

Mylar Stained Glass Flower Ornament

This beautiful ornament created by our own Lisa Shaw combines the sparkle of semi-transparent reflective Mylar film with the dimensional appeal of embroidery to create an enchanting stained-glass effect.

We’ve included a PDF with complete, step-by-step instructions for stitching and finishing the ornament in the project files. All you’ll need is a small piece of Mylar, fibrous water-soluble stabilizer and your favorite embroidery thread to create this wonderfully dynamic piece for your window, garland, or any display!

The design is provided in our native .BE format, enabling you to save a stitch file for any embroidery machine. If you aren’t already an Embrilliance owner, we provide a free method to use our software called Express Mode that not only allows you to use any of the wonderful free designs found in our project blog, but also enables you to install and create basic text treatments with fonts distributed in our popular .BX format produced by many embroidery design creators.
