Sewing with Texture Magic...

Last week I did what I said I was going to do. Sew with Texture Magic. I had purchased a package several years ago when it first came out and there it sat in the drawer. Hmmm...
Then I saw it actually sewn and finished on some sample pieces in the fabric store and I purchased another package. I was so enamored with the product I just knew I must try it.
This first photo is my fabric (Fairy Frost) sewn with the grid lines I drew.

This photo is the back of my "fabric" which is actually the texture magic that I drew the grid lines on in order to sew them. Not very exciting yet!

Hmmm...something is happening to my texture magic side of the fabric. It is shriveling and getting all lumpy. Lets turn this over and see the correct side and the result...

It truly is magic! This is the same fabric as in the first photo that has now been steamed. The Texture Magic has done it's job and my fabric has lots of dimension and texture. It appears to have been smocked.
Now to decide what I shall make with this piece. It isn't very large so I am pondering my options. I have some ideas and will soon decide what it shall become. My studio cutting table and I are auditioning some fabrics and patterns. We will make our decision soon and then post the finished product once it is completed. Please don't hold your breath as there is no deadline for this project. It will happen when it happens. I do not know where my time goes however it certainly disappears quickly.
What would you make with this textured fabric?
It is bright pink but then that is the little girl in me who loves pink everything and Mary Jane shoes. Hmmm...princess?
Happy creating...


  1. Love how your fabric turned out, I'll have to try it. The color is so beautiful, maybe a little purse???

  2. I have never heard of this, but now I know why you loved it!! fantastic! My first idea for a project with this gorgeous hot pink textured fabric now is a dressy purse! Can't wait to hear what you decide upon for it. Happy pink puckering! ~Kathy

  3. That is amazing! I have never heard of this stuff. I can see it becoming a romantic throw pillow, a chic purse, or a really nice hair net (Lol, just kidding!).
    Can't wait to see what you make of it.

  4. Fantastic! I too bought a package but haven't tried it out yet. I've seen it used for purse fronts to add lots of texture. Can't wait to see how you end up using this piece. :-)

  5. I'm taking a machine quilting break and this is SO great. I luv texture. Top of my head is Pillow! But I wonder what would happen if you stitched it out on sheer fabric or thin paper???

  6. oooohhh lala! I totally have to try this :D Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. WOW!! This is like magic! Can't wait to see what you make!

  8. Loving that texture! Can't wait to see what happens next.

  9. I have never seen or heard of anything like this before, but I'm loving it!
    That is amazing! Oh my mind will be processing this new information all night now, I just know it!
    It really does look like smocking!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Ciao Bella!
