This past weekend I got some fabrics at a yard sale that are sparkly. I've never worked with it and wondered if any of you have experience with it? Do the sparkles rub off? Do they hold up to washing?

Ann would really depend on the fabric and what they used to adhere the sparkly stuff. I guess Id rub it together see if it comes off easily, then Id trim some off and wash it, see what happens. laura has some jeans and tops with sparkly stuff, they get washed adn dried and the sparkles never come off.
