    I received a wonderful gift from Betty62 and it is something that I have not seen before.
    "Texture Magic"!
    Now, for those of you who are not familiar with this (as with me) it is a product that "Magically texturizes your fabric using only your steam iron!" It shirnks the fabric 30% in all directions.
    Just apply it to your fabric and the steam does the rest. Not sure if the picture posted below will show the before and after cearly enought, but it sure does look like a kick to use.
    If by chance anyone here on the QB has used this would you be so kind as to post a picture of what you have made with Texture Magic.
    Betty mentioned that she has not yet used it either and we both sure could use any suggestions as to what to make. Betty did say that the demonstrator had made a design, perhaps a flower, and then applied it to a purse. From what she said it was really cute.

    I also would love to see projects where the texture magic was used. I was thinking of a flap on a purse? I haven't tried mine yet either.

    Me too. I got some on the last trip south of the boader and have yet to use it. Looks like lots of fun.

    A friend made a purse with it; the purse was really cute. One of the LQS demo'd it at a guild meeting recently, used it only on the flap of a purse. The flap was actually kind of shaped like a leaf and the stitiching used w/ the Texture Magic sort of along the lines of the veins on a leaf. Sorry, no picture... Made it very artsy.

    I love the look of TM. My LQS has some examples of it's use. It's just not in my budget to buy it.

    Can't wait to see what you make out of it!
    I do know, the closer you sew on it, the tighteer the design becomes.
    Too far apart and you won't notice much change :wink: :D:D:D

    I used it for a darling baby dress. the yoke was texturized (?). Personally, I didn't like the feel for clothing. it was too plastic-y for me. My cousin, whose baby it was for, loved it. It really does make a nice effect. I would use for a purse in the future, not clothing. JMHO

    I saw this at my LQS just recently but didn't take the time to stop and check it out thoroughly. I will be there again on Tues and I will definitely stop now to see what it is all about. I think they even had a project done using this. Will keep you posted.

    they were pushing it at our lqs and I thought and thought- it is very very pricey and there just has to be something else that would do the same thing for a fraction of the cost. you are essentially "melting" plastic that has been sewn to the fabric.

    I haven't used it yet but was planning to use it on the centers of a sunflower quilt.

    One of the neatest projects we've seen using texture magic is the Serenity shoulder bag, using Cara Serenity fabrics and texture magic:

    There is also another tote, made specifically for the TM product:

    It's nifty stuff!

    Seems like it would be an interesting product. I would love to see pictures when you try it.

    How hard is it to use? Our lqs went out of business and I picked up a package for real cheap but have not opened it.

    I've used it quite a few times. I used it a couple of time to make an overlapping flap on a purse. It really adds a little interest to a funcional part of the purse.It would be awfully cute to "smock" the top of a little girls dress. I really like the product, even if it's very expensive.

    It does not come undone after washing because you sew it to your fabric.I used 1/4 inch then crossed it the other way.
    you can do stippling or anything you want.
    If you do a search under texture magic you can see my frogs belly better than in the picture I posted.
    Get that out of package and have fun!

    Ps I changed my avatar to my snowman quilt I just finished so you would all feel cool!lol
