just looked for this and nearly $1000 for 15 metres from Floriani . would have liked to try it but not at that price
So cute, Thank you for sharing. Happy Stitching!!
That's gorgeous, well done!
very cute. I saw this technique done in a quilt shop near me. The owner used it on squares of beautiful floral fabrics and then made a purse out of it. It was gorgeous. I really like your sheep. hugs
Love the design. Good to know about heat n shrink!!
I saw the shrinking fabric a year or two ago at the Hatched in Africa trunk show. Love the design you used. It really makes the sheep stand out. Lovely.
Never ever heard of this fabric, looks great on the sheep.
So cute. hugs
I have about 5 or 6 pkgs. of Texture Magic but haven't used it yet. My friend just won a blue ribbon at county fair with her heirloom pillow which featured side panels using the stipple stitching on the fabric and Texture Magic. It is a lovely pillow. Never ever thought to use it as you have. What a cute idea on the sheep.
This is the best use of texture magic I've seen! This would be a great gift for the people I herd sheep with. Fabulous project!!
I love your idea
Welcome to the Board!
Looking good hugs
I just love it. I never knew about this product. Thanks for the information.
Very cute little Baa Baa! Great use of the shrink fabric! I have had a package of the Shrink Magic for 3 or 4 years...still in the package...perhaps I should pull it out and give it a whirl...
Not familiar with the Shrink fabric but after looking at your sheep and the great job you did I will investigate it/Lillian
I bought some of this fabric some years ago when I was in SA I paid R110 for a piece 47 x 18 inches ( which was expensive for me at that time)its still in the wrapping. Try to google superiorthreads.com on the instructions it says that the stuff shrinks up to 30% and they give a shrink conversion eg if you need a piece 2 inches big then use a piece of shrink fabric 2 3/4inches. I saw this used In a quilt where the lady wanted a section of her art quilt to look like water. It was amazing
Meant to say your little sheep also look amazing
Thanks for the conversion rate. Yes it is expensive. I only bought a small amount. I think it was $40/m here. That quilt sounds wonderful. I can imagine all sorts of projects to use it on now
Excellent - must look out for some of that!
Original and cute, good job!
Beautiful work ,unusual material never heard of this. Where did you buy it and what is it called please? You have us all inspired , It sure has a great effect with this design. Glad you are having fun with your janome 5ooe, i just love mine and what it can do. The larger frames are magic you are able to combine so . much more into a design or multiply .. Sandra.
I bought some from my local sewing shop half an hours drive away. I just couldn't resist!
She looks baaaaatiful!!! Love Chris
You have us all going now about the shrinking fabric. I personally have never heard of it so it is all new to me as well.
How lucky are you to have a Janome 500E club. My shop just closed her doors no notice seems her lease was up.
What a shame about your local shop. Mine is half an hour away. But I still call it local.
That is so cute! I think I would like to do something like this. So you shrink it and then use it for applique?
Yes I have a design to use ith(it can also be done on the sewing machine) to make the textured design first on the shrink fabric with another layer of ordinary fabric over the top. You then remove it from the hoop and heat it. Then you can use the textured fabric for anything you like including applique embroidery
Great look. So does the shrink fabric get wrinkled first and then used like fabric applique? Must be fun to watch.
Yes you shrink it first then use it for applique. Sooo much fun. I could not help myself and buy some to do at home!
