Toddler Girl Outfit with Texture Magic

As I have said previously, I'm always looking for new ideas for Texture Magic. There are so many ways to add a little bit here and a little bit there to make a project extra special.
Children especially love to be able to touch the texture in their clothes, quilts or toys.

I made a toddler size 2 outfit, putting Texture Magic on the pockets.

Perfect to make these little chicks stand out.

Imagine a little girl reaching inside the pocket to find a surprise. Or she may use this pocket to store a special keepsake.

The yellow rick rack on the legs of the pants tie the outfit together.

I used McCalls M4756 for my inspiration.
Look around at patterns and think of ways a little Texture Magic can make your outfits special.
Remember, Superior Threads offers a Conversion Chart on their website, so you will know what size to cut the pieces to allow for shrinkage.
On small pieces I recommend stitching quite close together. I have also noticed when I make the stitches close together the Texture Magic does not shrink the 30% when steamed.

Such a cute chick. I truly had not thought of Texture magic with a chick. Now I'm thinking of Christmas trees, stars, hearts, easter eggs, chicks, and so many other traditional designs that will be far more exciting with Texture Magic.

Thanks for sharing.

Hey Nedra,
I ran into a guy (name??) here at the Northwest Quilt Expo in Portland Oregon. I said "I talk with Nedra through our blogs!"

Anyway, I loved his sample book of texture magic!

I love this little outfit! When my children were small I used to sew most of their clothes. And I particularly loved nautical designs so I am thinking I agree with SewCalGal and sailboats would be darling too! Oh the possibilities are endless!! Love it

Hi Nedra,
I am sorry the last comment I made came up as a anon.

I love your little sweet outfit. Funny I too am making children's clothing. LOL! Little jackets and hats made from fleece. I think I will try the texture majic chickie on one of them. Thanks for the inspiration.
