Rated 4 out of 5 by HerRoyalDollness Great to add a bit of sparkle on decorative projects
This is a shade of Fairy Frost that is indeed different from many of the others we've come to know and love. It does not have the same tone-on-tone or pearlescent sheen as others, but rather an applied layer of glitter. This results in a much different look and feel.
I do not use this fabric on items that will receive a lot of use and handling as I don't feel it Is at all suited for those. I do, however, really like it on decorative projects that won't need frequent washing or be subject to a lot of wear--such as a quilted wall hanging, fabric ornaments, and the like.
You do need to heed the washing instructions as machine washing causes this fabric to lose a lot of the glitter the first time through, which could be an enormous disappointment.
This is certainly not the typical Fairy Frost, but one that I've quite enjoyed using as long as it is handled a bit differently than the others.
I give it four stars of five due to the extra care needed in both handling and project choice.

Rated 2 out of 5 by anthgirl Pretty, but not good for quilting
I agree with the other reviewer 100%. I thought this was going to be like the other fairy frost material, which is pretty smooth and easy to work with. This material is very, very stiff, I think because it has a layer of adhesive on it to keep the glitter on. Pretty, but I will not be able to use it in a baby quilt at all. It would be too scratchy and I don't want glitter all over the baby! Would probably be best for holiday wall hangings or something of that sort. Customer service for fabric.com was outstanding though.

Rated 1 out of 5 by kfjaye I usually love fairy frost fabrjcs...
I don't like giving negative feedback, but in this case I wish I had known the "glitz" fairy frost fabric is not the same as regular fairy frost. I ordered this fabric thinking the "glitz" just meant extra silver sparkly shine and otherwise it would be like other fairy frost fabrics I've ordered.
However when I received he fabric I was so surprised at not only the look but more importantly the feel of it. It's very stiff feeling, almost like a "canvas upholstery" fabric. The "sparkles" appeared more like regular craft glitter that were just sprinkled over the surface of the fabric, and were rubbing off everywhere,..it didn't resemble other fairy frost fabrics at all.
I've never returned fabric, but in this case I did. I had ordered 3 yards to back a quilt for my granddaughter; and that's too much fabric to "toss to the rag pile".
I do however give Fabric.com 5+ stars for their customer service. They took the fabric back with no problems, and even covered the return postage. Now that's above and beyond!
I plan to stick with ordering the regular fairy frost, and here on Fabric.com is where I normally buy it.
