    I checked out a local quilt shop in Buford Ga. today and they had a quilted purse that the fabric was puffy. The hook next to it was empty but that is where whatever make the fabric puff was. Has anyone seen or done something with this product. Like a dummy I did not write the name of it down.

    Could it be the batting underneath? Maybe they doubled it?

    No Boston, it is something you wash the fabric in I think. It must be something relatively new as this is the first time I have seen something like that. I just may have to go back tomorrow & get more information.

    I believe that what you are talking about is called Texture Magic. You cut it the same size of the fabric, draw a grid onto it, and sew your fabric to it, following the grid. Then you steam it, and it shrinks and because the fabric is attached to it, it wrinkles or puffs. I think is very cool. You can see it at

    There are two products that I have seen recently ..one is a iron on interfacing that you stitch on line lines and then steam just above it to make it puff. Then clover has come out with some clips that you use to hold the fabric while you sew it to make different patterns after it is sewn. Clever huh? I think the first one has different patterns printed on the back, so you buy the one you want. (not sure)

    The first time I saw that I wondered what I would ever use it for, but I think it would look cool as a purse.

    I have a package of interlining that my quilt angel sent me from Japan. Apparently now it is in at the Moda Shop as well. You lay it on the material, sew on the lines in a grid pattern and then steam it to make the lining shrink and the material puff. I don't know what it is called because it is all in Japanese, but it is really cool.

    I had seen someone use that Texture Magic on the center of an Iris in a quilt. It was really sharp. I wish I could remember if it was here on this board or on another board I saw it on. All I remember was that it was puffy and that the person stated that she kept wanting to touch it.

    thought I'd never find it lol.
    Here it is..

    There's a thread out too. You sew on your fabric, maybe in a criss-cross pattern, then steam it and the thread shrinks. It's like shrink-a-dinks only with thread! Sorry, I can't remember the name, but I think a lot of places are carrying it now.

    Found the thread. It's called "The Incredible Shrinking Thread" and it comes in different colors. If you Google, you will find some reviews of it and samples.

    Here is a link to a thread about it on PatternReview:
    http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-...9&readreview=1

    or, if that isn't clickable,

    I've seen this thread online for about $6. Shopper's Rule carries it, as do many other places.
