The Iridescent Snowmen Embroidery Designs Collection includes 25 snowmen designs. The snowmen get their sparkle from Opal Mylar Tissue, no metallic thread needed. Instead, you simply layer the Mylar Tissue on top of your design after embroidering the first color as detailed in the project instructions. To find additional colors of Mylar, click here.

Use the thread colors as noted on the color chart included with the design collection, or select your own colors. There are 80 spools of beautiful rayon thread in the 80 Smart Spool Incredible Threadable Embroidery Box. With 200 yards of thread per spool, you can do a lot of machine embroidery.
