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:
