I like to use Perfect Circles because I feel it helps me to have a nice crisp even edge around the outside of each circle.
First, for my project I decided to use the 2-inch circle, which is the largest size in the package.
Next, I went to my Texture Magic Conversion Chart to see what size I needed to cut my fabric and Texture Magic. For 2", the chart says 2 3/4". I knew I needed an extra 1/4th" to allow for a seam allowance around the circle, so I cut out 3" pieces.
This is a great way to use up all those little left over Texture Magic sections from previous projects.
Layer the Texture Magic to the back of a piece of fabric and stitch together. You can use any type of stitching you want. For this first circle, I did an easy stipple.
Apply steam to shrink the fabric. Now you are ready to cut out your circle.
With a needle and knotted thread, sew a running stitch around the outer seam allowance.
Place the plastic inside, pull the threads, and the seam will gather around the circle.
With a regular piece of fabric the instructions mention using spray sizing and a hot iron to keep the sides in place. I found out that with the Texture Magic I didn't need to use sizing. I could iron the sides and they held their shape perfectly.
*Remember: DO NOT TOUCH THE IRON TO THE TEXTURE MAGIC ( The heat will cause it go brittle). Just iron the outer edges in place, and pull out the plastic.
I love the extra dimension.
You can use a variety of stitches when applying Texture Magic to the back of your fabric. For this one I did a small grid.
Texture Magic can be purchased at most local quilt stores or through Superior Threads web site.
