Has anyone bought the glow in the dark threads from Sublime Stitching?

I'm working on a project with them at the moment. They look like they'll be fun but are a bit rough, so I'm keen to see how it all looks when I'm done.

So if anyone else has given them a go I'd love to see how it they turned out. Might give me some ideas for future projects.

I've wanted to order them but haven't gotten around to it.  I'd love to see your project when it's finished.

Just to try the threads out I'm embroidering onto a t-shirt with robots printed on instead of using a ss pattern, then I think i'll turn it into a cushion.

I'll post pics when it's done!

I've got the metallic threads too, but not used them yet. Have you tried those?

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I've used it before. I love it! It really does glow in the dark.

I think that's going to be my next Sublime purchase, I've had my eyes on it now for quite some time.  I bet things look great embroidered on black fabric with it as well.

I finished this the other week, but didn't get round to posting it.

It's a t-shirt that I loved the print of but thought it was too 'young' so instead of throwing it out I've turned it into a cushion.

Just used the sublime stitching glow in the dark threads to go around some of the detail. It looks great in the dark. Not sure if a photo would work or not, maybe I'll give it a try.

This was before I finished stuffing it and sewing it up...


And close up...


My stitching isn't great, but it's fun!

Wow, the t-shirt pattern is awesome and I loved how you added heart and star doodles, I bet it looks awesome in the dark!

Yes... this is really a great idea to jazz up something you don't really wear anymore.  I made a quilt out of all my old concert t-shirts from the 90s and some Glow in the Dark thread would totally look cool to accent some of the T-shirt images... thanx for the idea!  Great job on a cute idea!
