This opalescent film creates a sparkly metallic effect between the stitches. It is used in specialized designs where the digitizer has deliberately left space between the design stitches to allow the film to show through. Echidna Opal Embroidery Film is similar to Mylar Polyester Film.
It's great to use with free-standing lace designs and motifs or 3D designs.

Please note: Not all embroidery designs are suitable to use with opalescent film. If you are planning to use it with other designs in your stash be sure to stitch a test sample prior to embroidering the design onto your final project.
