Textured Baby Toy & Flocked Fabric Giveaway

This week we've been giving Texture Magic a whirl. Just stitch on to the back of your fabric & steam it up for some unique texture to all kinds of projects like this crinkle baby toy:


I used some lime green OBV (organic bamboo velour) fabric which is very cuddly to touch and stitched a different design on each side so there would be a scrunched grid on this side:


And a wavy swirl on this one:


I sandwiched a piece of crinkly plastic (cut from a package of baby wipes) in between the fabrics so it would have an interesting sound and then encased the raw edge in some cute monster print fold over elastic so the edges would be soft too. Perfect for little hands that like to grab.  My 9 month old stayed happily occupied with this at the zoo yesterday for 30 minutes (aka eternity to moms of babies).  


Now on to this week's giveaway which has a texture theme too. Yesterday's Texture Magic project featured my new Around Town Bag with this fab Flocked Rooster fabric:


This breezy cotton fabric features flocked gingham roosters and suns. Super soft, fun lime & white color combo & perfect for summertime projects. 


I'm sharing my stash with my blog friends and giving away 1 yard of this fabric. Here's how to enter:

  16. love the baby toy...now i just need to dye my obv!

    as for the rooster fabric, i'd like to think i might branch out and finally make something other than a super cute skirt for one of my girlies but who am i kidding? but i did like someone else's idea of a camera strap cover; wouldn't it be swell if my camera could match the outfit i was photographing? i should do that with every skirt i make...lol!

  21. I would use the fabric for accents on pillow covers in my boys' rooms.

    Interestingly, I just 'discovered' Texture Magic (online, haven't been able to purchase it locally yet) about two weeks ago. It looks like so much fun.
