Use Mylar Specific Embroidery Designs:
Mylar embroidery designs are digitized with a thinner density specifically for the thin film of the Magic Sparkle Embroidery Topper to be added underneath the fill areas & allow light to penetrate between the stitches & create a beautiful glitter like effect. Much like an applique design as well, digitizing mylar designs requires a tack down running stitch to hold the material in place.
That being said, you can embroider mylar embroidery designs without inserting a sheet of Magic Sparkle Embroidery Topper however you can not embroider a regular embroidery design with a piece of Magic Sparkle Embroidery Topper.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Will Magic Sparkle Embroidery Topper melt under a heat press?

Q: How do you adjust density for mylar designs using embroidery software?
A: Go into “fill” in your software and change the spacing from 0.4 to 1.2mm. Turn of the “travel on edge” so there is no underlay as well.
