Texture Magic Diet Plan

With the few smoke free minutes available during the trunk show at Bryce, we were able to demonstrate the TEXTURE MAGIC DIET PLAN.

First, I asked my good friend Nanette (of Freda's Hive) to come up and let me wrap her in Texture Magic. That Nanette is always such a good sport, and was so gracious about helping out.

Next I asked Nanette to step behind the quilt where I steamed, steamed, steamed, steamed.

Texture Magic is a steam-activated shrinking fabric made of polyester.
The fabric shrinks 30% in all directions when steam is applied. After shrinking, result is permanent. Washer and dryer safe.

(*Note: The results are PERMANENT!)

From the other side of the quilt, out popped Nanette, who not only shrank in pounds and inches, but she also lost 30 years in age.
Now who wouldn't want to try Texture Magic after that?
(My many thanks to Nanette and her darling daughter Shelbie for helping with the skit).

Texture Magic can be purchased at your local quilt store or ordered on Superior Threads web site.

If I had known it was that easy, I would have ordered some years ago! How much would I need to drop about 80 pounds? :)

I read Nanette too and love her blog!

Glad no one was hurt in the fire!

What a good idea to "sell" Texture Magic. You have such creativity. *S*

If all it took was a bit of steam, I'd be running down to my sewing room to use my steam iron. lol. I sure wish it was that easy.

I loved the skit and it was so fun to see Nanette and her daughter playing along. Thanks for sharing all of the fun with all of us here at home. I've really enjoyed it. Say hi, to everyone.
