A friend of mine and I have been wanting to try out the "Texture Magic" product. Since I needed a small gift for a friend, I decided this little eyeglass case would be perfect to do so. The case actually holds two pair of glasses.
This stuff really is amazing! All you do is pin the thin sheet of TM to the back of your fabric and sew a grid or free motion a design. Then you get your trustworthy steam iron out and hit it with steam until it puckers up nicely.
Then all you do is cut your pattern from the puckered fabric piece and sew it up.
Here is the product. I've seen this used in purses and purses, but you could do anything with it. It would be pretty cool to use it in a small quilt and alternate the blocks with regular fabric.
I also have some of that thread that shrinks. I've got to try that next and see how that compares with Texture Magic.
