Have you heard of Texture Magic? Magic puckers is a cool new product that makes surface textures fast and easy! To achieve this mocked-smocking look, all you need is a straight stitch sewing machine, a piece of material, a good steam iron and some Magic Pucker cloth. It’s as easy as 1-2-3–
1. Size out your fabric
First you’ll want to determine how you plan to use the Magic Puckers and then increase the size of your project’s piece by 30% to allow for the shrinkage. Cut a piece of Magic Puckers the same size as your fabric.
2. Straight Stitching is Easy!
Then, Join the two pieces together by stitching a grid using a parallel foot or a quilting guide. Be sure not to place the Magic Pucker fabric on the wrong side of the material.
3. Time to PUCKER -UP!
Lastly, after the grid is complete, steam the Magic Pucker side of the grid piece and watch in amazement as the fabric shrinks and the puckers appear!
See The Difference? The same piece before and after steam….too much fun!
