Default Glitter Fabric

Does anyone have a source for the new glitter fabric that many people are using for cheer bows? It is not mystique, or spandex. It looks exactly like glitter, it is very sparkly, but does not shed the glitter.

Here is a link to a store that has a bow made from it:

I would like to know as well. It seems almost like glitter vinyl or something thinner than the usual fabric

I found some of the fabric I think you are talking about. This stuff is $40 per yd but is lined with heat and bond.

Maybe this will work: http://www.ehow.com/how_6393677_keep...er-fabric.html

It's a lot cheaper than $40/yard!

I had seen this as well (and had the same WOW reaction LOL)! This is the look of the fabric that I am looking for, but having seen bows made with the one I am looking for I know that is not what the other bowmakers were using....the search continues....I will let you know if I find the holy glitter grail!

Hey Ladies!

It is a vinyl. I have played around with it a little . There are two types that I have used.

http://www.stahls.ca/heat-transfer-m...-glitter-flake

This material still flaked off and the glitter got everywhere. It was pretty stiff to work with once it was on the grosgrain. It was also difficult to press anything after using that material, meaning that if you over heat it on your heat press it will pick up onto your teflon sheet and put weird little wholes of nothing on the grosgrain.

The second is:

http://www.stahls.ca/heat-transfer-material-hologram

I did some worlds bows with this material and it worked pretty well, it is pretty stiff though. I liked this one better then the above one!

One thing to note, if you don't have a heat press it is not recommended that you use this material. It is normally used to put lettering and different images on heat press tshirts and the like.

I plan to use it for logos and will play around with it other ways and let you know! Thanks!
