I did just finish another Texture Magic Tote that I will be sending off today to Wickenburg, Arizona, as a store sample.
Texture Magic Totes designed by Annie Unrein can be found on Superior Threads website.
One of the new and delightful experiences for me in making this tote is I tried a thread I've never used before.
Razzle Dazzle by Ricky Tims for Superior Threads is an 8 weight, heavier embellishment thread. It's made of polyester and metallic and comes in the most beautiful shiny colors.
Because Razzle Dazzle is so thick, it can't be threaded in the needle, and needs to be wound on the bobbin.
This is perfect to use with Texture Magic because you draw grids and sew from the back of the project.
Razzle Dazzle is also soft and pliable, so it works well when the fabric is steamed and shrunk.
I love how it sparkles.
Even though this was my first experience doing bobbin work, it was easy to do! I wound the thread onto the bobbin on my machine, just like I would do with any other thread.
I used MasterPiece as the top thread, and just increased my stitch length a little. I had so much fun experimenting, I know I will be using more decorative threads in the future as I work with Texture Magic.
