GIVEAWAY DAY!!!!

For the Giveaway Day Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite new product called Texture Magic, it is so much fun! I first read about a similar product here and knew I need to have some, So now that I have found it I want to share it with you too!
You will receive 1 pkg of Texture Magic Size: 47" x 18". Detailed instructions included. Along with 35, pre-cut 2"x 2" squares in a fun variety of prints and this fun little purse size notebook holder made by me (notebook & mini pen included)! All you have to do is leave me a comment in this post, tell me about a fun sewing product you love! Deadline is midnight 12:00 Eastern time in May 31st! Winner will be chosen randomly and announced on June 1st. International welcome!

I wanted to have a tutorial finished to post, I made this little notebook cover, but then thought there are already so many wonderful tutorial out there already! Like this one, and this one and this one is great too.

So Here is a bit of mine in photos...
I started with lots of 2" x 2" squares.

Stitched them together.

The used Fusible Fleece and the Texture Magic. Iron on the Fusible Fleece

and the pin the Texture Magic in to place.

Quilt the seams to hold the Texture Magic in to place.

The using a STEAM IRON "DO NOT TOUCH IRON TO TEXTURE MAGIC",

you hold over iron a few inches over to steam and the fabric starts to shrink.

Depending on where you stitched your fabric to the Texture Magic

is where it will pucker. I ran my stitches on all of the seams

to create little pillows of patches!

Your creative ideas are endless with this product!

This is the back view of the mini notebook holder

Interior View!

Good luck and be sure to check Sew Mama Sew for a complete list of giveaways!

Happy Giveaway Day! Meg

Neat product. I've never seen it before. It could really come in useful. I've got all kinds of ideas floating around in my head.
As far as a product that I like. It is actually one I have never used because yesterday is the first time I saw it. It was the tread fabric that you find on the feet of children's footy pajamas. I never thought about being able to buy that. A lady from England was in JoAnns in Knox. TN buying it. She was so happy to find it.

Loralynn said...

Very cool! One of my favorite tools that I use all the time is my 6 1/2" cutting square. It's so small it doesn't get in the way and it's great for trimming those "little bits" that get left over!

Deborah said...

That is a very cool product. I've never seen anything like it before! Thank you! I don't know how FUN this product is but I can't live without a rotary cutter! It is a necessary tool in my kit!
Thank you for sharing, I love your blog!
Deborah

Sharon said...

How fun! Please enter me in your giveaway! Have a wonderful day!

Jcbaron99 said...

I've been having fun with elastic thread lately - was intimidated by it for SO long. But it's easy and so many possibilities! Texture Magic looks like lots of fun as well!

Kindershop said...

I am such a big fan of your bags. You always come up with such fun designs. Great give away, too. Thanks for the chance to win.

LB3K said...

Very cool! My favorite thing right now is elastic thread for shirring. With three little girls, I am shirring everything!

Bethany said...

Wow! that looks like a really neat product! I've never seen it before. I really like heat n' bond. I use it to stiffen up purse handles and make easy appliques.

Sarah said...

How adorable! The product I like best... shirring elastic. I'm always finding new things to shirr!

Daisy said...

Just found your site, learned out how to make a fabric flower, use grommets (which i have been wondering about), vistited your etsy site, and oh one last thing I LOVE YOUR HAIR CUT!!!!! I am so glad they had this giveaway so I could find your blog.

Christy said...

happy giveaway day to you too! my fave sewing product would have to be fabric ink! thanks for the chance to win!

isabel f. said...

Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!
count me in, please!!
great product :D
go see my giveaway
hugs Isabel

eriamaude said...

The product I like the most ? At this time, I could'nt live without my rotary cutter. It makes cutting easier and faster.

It is the first time I sew that texture magic product. Special.

Emily said...

Wow, I would love to win this and make it for one of my young cousins. As for a product I love, it has to be my grandmother's sewing machine, which I'm learning to use! Makes me feel close to her.

windycindy said...

What an interesting product! Thanks for introducing it to me. Your notebook holder is fabulous! I take one wherever I go to keep track of things. Please enter my name in your delightful drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

sandyandcosmo said...

I have never heard of Texture Magic but it looks like it would be fun to play around with. The sewing tool I could not live without: a good pair of left-handed scissors!

Jenna Z said...

I LOVE me some double fold bias seam binding! I use it for everything, binding quilts, pot holders, clothing, applique, everything! I have the tools to make my own but it's just too easy (and cheap when it's on sale 50% off) to buy it premade. :)

Nichole said...

looks like fun stuff, I'd love to give it a try on some projects. One project I am loving right now is doing some embroidery for my daughter's wall. It's been ages since I've done it and it is quite relaxing. thanks!

roseread said...

I love sewing skirts. It doesn't matter the pattern.

Rebecca said...

I love making little projects - like chequebook covers, key fobs, notebook covers, tissue covers - such a quick way to make a great gift.

Jingle said...

That looks so neat! How fun! I don't do a ton of sewing, as I'm brand new to it, so I don't really have favorite products yet. Anything that makes it EASY! LOL!

Leigh said...

That's so cool, I've never seen that! I am fairly new to sewing, so my favorite tool right now is my seam ripper! :D

KBraden said...

Oh wow that is neat! Count me in!

kikiverde said...

Neat! I've never heard of texture magic before, I'll have to check it out. One of the sewing products I love is the pincushion that has a wrist strap. It sure does make life a lot easier with some projects.

Thanks for participating in the giveaway and feel free to check out my blog as well for my entry!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I have been wanting to try Texture Magic and just have not bought any. Your tutorial is great to show how to use it.

Michele said...

This looks like a fun little product; thanks for sharing. My favorite sewing product would have to be my rotary cutter. My most essential product would be my seam ripper-must learn to think before acting!

annemarie said...

This sounds like a really neat product. I cannot live without my various scissors - each has a purpose and no one is allowed near them. I have even at times hidden them so that they are not used for paper cutting and whatever else!!

Shop With Amy said...

I love the idea of this product and would love a chance to test it!! My fave fun tool is my ruffler foot, it saves tons of time and frustration:) My fave functional tool is my buddy the serger!! Thanks~!
http://AmybugsOriginalStyle.etsy.com is the best way to reach me by sending a "convresation"

Pam said...

This product is new to me too. Worked pretty neat on your item! My favorite sewing product is my serger. I love the finished look it gives to even the simpliest project. If a serger is not considered a product, I would have to say I like the set of plastic chop sticks I recently purchased. The fine point helps me turn corners much better than the wooden blunt-end sticks I had been using. Thanks for sharing in this giveaway. http://sewmanyprojectssolittletime.blogspot.com hellopf@yahoo.com

White Way to Light said...

What a cute notebook cover! That product looks like lots of fun!

The product I like is the Gypsy Gripper! Helps that ruler to stay in place while I cut!

Thanks for the giveaway! :)

Dionne said...

What a fun product! I've never seen it, never even heard of it! That's one of the GREAT things about blogging and bloggers. I always learn something new! Right now I am loving fusible web. I would NEVER have tried Applique without it!
Cheers,
Dionne

QuiltChick said...

Wow, interesting technique! Thanks for the info!

Michelle said...

My favourite new product is the Clover Desktop Needle Threader. I won it from my quilt store. I did not think I would use but then started using small quilting needles. It has been fantastic. Your giveaway is great! Thank you!

Jamie said...

My favorite thing (because I am not nearly as great as you at sewing) is fabric tape. Whatever I can't sew I use the tape on and it's been great. Maybe that's sort of cheating but it works for me! I've done things like window treatments and aprons for my daughter's birthday party. They turn out great and no one ever knows. Although someday I hope to be much better at sewing.

Cindy said...

This is awesome! Thanks.

Kyra said...

Right now I very excited about my first online quilt-a-long! Can't wait to get it finished! Thanks for the chance to win!

Sarah C said...

wow i had completely forgotten about this stuff! how fun it would be to try to use it...well not try...but to actually get to use it!

i know its not a new product, or very fun, but my favorite sewing tool is my water soluble marker. I use that for everything!!! I also recently bought a iron on transfer pencil to help me transfer designs when i go to embroider something. Sure beats holding fabric up to the window!!

The Tinsley Family said...

Love it! The colors you used are so fun and bright. It would be fun to make something cute for my little girl with it. Something I HAVE to have is my rotary cutter. She much faster than scissors.

Bethany said...

I love heat n' bond hem tape. so quick and easy. This Texture Magic looks like something fun to play with. Thanks!

The Eagars said...

I have never seen this stuff before but looks fantastic!

ivebeenchanged05 said...

great product!
I couldn´t live without the "magic pen". (I don´t know what it´s called in english. You can wash it off when you´r done sewing)
Take care!

Ellyn said...

how cool is that? That's a new one on me! My favorite product isn't fancy, it's fusible fleece! I use it in all my purses & bags

My Child's Diary said...

Please count me in! Thanks! I love sewing quilts. samjerus[at]yahoo.com

Marsel said...

Oh fun! That would make a very cool bodice for a dress for my daughter...

Raysha said...

My favorite sewing project lately is the nursing cover, changing pad, wipes holder, and burp cloth sets I made for the upcoming birth of my baby boy!

Sue Cahill said...

Looks like a really fun new product.

My favorite project was making coffee cozies for my guild quilt show boutique. I made 20. They were quick, easy and I got to use lots of scraps. And they all sold.

Sue Cahill (sboetsue at yahoo dot com)

kestch said...

My favourite project is crazy quilting - no matter what it starts off as it morphs into something completely different!

Amy said...

What a cool product, that would be so much fun to play with. My favorite tool is my Ginghar True Lefthanded shears. It would be almost impossible for me to cut any fabric without these.

willywagtail said...

That sure is a cute product. Wonder what I could use it for?!!

kathytypestoo said...

wow, that stuff is crazy! i love making little flower pin cushions-so cute and quick. thanks for your generosity!

Sandy said...

Very cool product...have not seen that one before but would be fun to play with. Count me in.

HeatherGwood said...

oh, that's cool

Kelli said...

Oooo...I've wanted to try this! I just love my 6 1/2" square ruler. I use this one all the time!

gina said...

That stuff looks awesome! I had not seen this before.

It's hard to pick one notion or tool, cause I'm a notion addict. But I think probably more than anything would be my 6 inch see thru ruler!! Use it constantly!!

mamaof4 said...

So cool. That would be very interesting to learn. What a great idea for your giveaway!

MB said...

I love the look this product makes. I am not an avid sewer so, I don't really have a favorite sewing product. If I have to have one, I'd say plain old needle and thread.
mbabecka@hotmail.com

Hippie Family... said...

that is so cool! how did you find that? I would love to win something like that!
i am an FOE aholic. do you ever go to Angry Chicken's site? she does everything with it.. it's great!

Sandra @ Pepperberry and Co. said...

Wow! That looks exciting. And I love patchwork!! My favourite tool- oh dear! There are so many :-) I definitely couldn't do anything at all without my rotary cutter and iron. They're two things I never thought of when I first started sewing, but they're indispensable and I use them more than my actual sewing machine!! xx

Yehudim@aol.com

Anne said...

Wow, I love finding out about new products. my favorite tool is my rotary cutter! thanks for the giveaway!

The Fair Weather Optimist said...

Ah, the tool that I can't live without has got to be a chopstick! I have been on a coaster making kick and use it to poke out the corners when I turn 'em. And when it's not in use it makes a handy hair-stick to keep the hair out of my eyes. LOL!!

Beautiful give-away! Hope I win!
xoxoxoxo Jaime

lyndyloo said...

Its like Christmas opening all these new to me blogs. The shrinky stuff looks fun. Thanks for such a lovely blog.

Nikki

Naomi said...

Never seen it before but I love it! And the little notebook is pretty cute too!

As for a favourite sewing tool....I can't think of one! I hope I can still enter :)

BKelly said...

Wow the Texture Magic looks very cool. I guess one of my favorite products right not would be the printable fabric. It has really allowed me to add personal touches to some of the things I have made.

erin said...

That's really neat! I've never seen that either!
Love the choices of fabrics too. Nice and summery!

rebecca said...

My fav sewing/quilting tool is anything made by sulky for stabilizer. Makes my applique projects much more fun! Rebecca

supermedic said...

i have to get me some of that stuff. I have heard of it but never seen it. i can think of sooo many things to do with it....but pj (flannel) pants are my favorite thing to make--quick and simple and useful.

Carol said...

I would love to give the texture magic a try and your notebook cover is so cute. I like projects at Moda Bake Shop. I made a little fabric pouch yesterday, it's called a bookkeeper, for paperback books or the electronic book Kindle. I made mine a bit smaller to use for our passports for our upcoming vacation. My next project is a tote bag to take on my vacation, I'm using the Moda fabrics called Pack Your Bags.

kelliemorgan said...

Love this product! This would be great for baby quilts. My favorite product is the basting tool to connect safety pins when finishing quilts. Such a time saver.

The Shumate Family said...

very cool! I'd like to try this!

LLMS said...

It's the first time I've heard about Texture Magic, it looks great!

Karissa said...

Great giveaway! I've been seeing glimpses of that "shrinky stuff" in action--nice to know it can be found! I don't know how "fun" it is, but one of my favorite sewing products is spray baste. I'm primarily a quilter, and spray baste has changed my life! Seriously.

Cathy M said...

Wow, that is cool stuff. My favorite sewing tool is my cajillion pairs of scissors left everywhere I could possibly need them.

Stacey - Elle Belle said...

Cool product! My favorite product is elastic thread that you use in the bobbin to make smocking. Great giveaway item and fun idea for comments!

FlowerMomma said...

cute! I'd love to try it! thanks.

The Mangerchine's said...

I'm new to sewing (have only done two projects so far) so I'm not too familiar with many products yet. So far my favorite "product" that I've used is actually a chop stick, to help poke the edges after turning a project inside out.

Anya said...

Cool. Thanks for the idea and for the chance for the giveaway.

Laurel said...

What a cool product and project.
My latest crafting thrill is making skirts for my daughters from thrift store pillowcases and sheets.
Thanks for giving!

Lavinia said...

Wow! I didn´t know such a thing existed! Thank you for introducing it to me! I love your blog, I added to my blogroll. Thanks for the giveaway ^__^

Cassie said...

This is neat! definitely could change how some of your quilts looked if you used it. :) cool!

Thanks for doing the giveaway!

debbiekl said...

I'd never heard of this before. Looks interesting! I think the best tool I have is my Friskars scissors. You can't beat a good pair of scissors!

Kaye Prince said...

Okay, it's not necessarily a "fun" product but I can't say enough about beeswax for me thread; it's wonderful!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Love 2 Quilt said...

That looks like fun stuff to play with, haven't seen it before. My favorite thing has to be my seam ripper. I don't know what I'd do with out it. As I read somewhere on a blog, it's a frogging tool. Rip-it, Rip-it, Rit-it

ircabbit said...

My favorite sewing projects are quilts. I like the creative results and unlike trying to follow clothing patterns, I seldom end up swearing and peering intently at the page trying to figure out what that diagram means. :) Much more relaxing to quilt.

Tiffany said...

A fun sewing product I love... I'm still pretty new to sewing so I love my new machine that has a variety of decorative stitches compared to my old plain one. tiffeg at gmail.com

chrissyand said...

I would love that project...

Carol said...

I love my rotary cutter, makes cutting so much easier than scissors. Would love to try this new project.
libertythreads@charter.net

Louisa said...

Something new to me is fusible fleece - pliable and strong.

lalepop said...

Whoa! That's cool! I haven't seen it before, either.

I like to use computer-printed shrinky dink sheets to make all kinds of embellishments. When I was teaching, I made an award for each of my students out of this stuff. You just design what you want, print it out, and shrink it in the oven. It's like the stuff we used to do as kids.

B said...

I love sewing anything I can get my hands on. I'm going to have to come back and try out this tutorial. I've already book marked it!

mrsbeaver said...

what a clever give away. My favorite thing right now is one of those little ruler thingies you use for heming. Wow- it really helps!

Busyquiltmom said...

I've read about this product but have never tried it. It looks really fun! A product I like... 505 spray for basting quilts. Makes things go so much faster.

Very cute giveaway. My favorite product is my rotary cutter.

Meg said...

Very cool notebook! Just checked out your etsy shop- it reminds me that I need to get going!

My favorite product- seam ripper- it fixes mistakes but also lets you take apart old clothes to reuse the material- at Christmas I took apart an old Laura Ashley dress of my moms and made each of my sisters a makeup bag! The dress had a lot of history so it was fun to pass on!!

Meg

Esther said...

Ali said...

Cool! That was a nice, simple tutorial. Thanks for offering a great giveaway.

Thanks for participating in giveaway day!

Wow... there are so many products out there that I still have to discover!

You have a very nice blog. I'm going to look around after I leave my post. This product sounds so smart. I can't wait to use it...and will have to get some. I've never seen anything like it. Thanks for sharing a little tutorial with your giveaway.

My favorite new product are precut hexegons so I can dive in and start sewing my grandmother's garden quilt without having to sit and cut out paper pieces first.

Take care.

fharr@umd.edu

Richelle said...

That looks like some fun stuff! I don't really have any cool tools, but I couldn't live without my rotary cutter!

Wendy said...

I've heard of this product but never imagined it could do such cute things.
I love my rotating cutting mat (about 14"square and spins like a turntable). It's great not having to turn your fabrics and mess them up once their all nestled together

Aim said...

Texture magic sounds cool! I like using water soluble stabilizer. It makes it so I can use my free motion pressure foot to "draw" with my sewing machine.

Thanks for the giveaway, if I am the lucky winner, you can contact me through my website www.radseams.com.

Tawny said...

That is a neat product. I've never heard of it before. I'd like to try it out! One of my fave sewing products is RIT brand fabric dye. I am learning how to Tie Dye t-shirts and this stuff is amazing. The brightest, nicest colours come out every time!

Jerri said...

So neat and different!

Kerry said...

I have been looking for stuff like this. I've seen in on other blogs, but haven't found it online to buy. Thanks for the chance to win!

bylulu said...

Gryhund said...

My favorite sewing tool is my 12" angled see through ruler. Its 5" wide and between 12-8 inches long. Love it! It has saved my tushie a few times.

Thanks for introducing me to texture magic. I had never heard of it, but now need to try it out!

bittersweet said...

First let me comment on your bags.awesome! I love bright and different fabrics on my purses. My favorite sewing project has to quilting in general and making dolls. Thanks so much for the great giveway. Sounds like a neat product. :))

Johnnal said...

I'm still totally in love with my sewing machine... nothing makes me happier! Thanks for the opportunity. Loved finding you blog, I'll be back!

sewfunky said...

Please enter me in the draw, and don't forget to enter mine. :)

Brooke in WI said...

My favorite sewing product is my pair of Gingher shears. I love them. Growing up, my Mom had a pair and we always, always had to put them back in the case when we were done sewing for the day.

Sandy in Buenos Aires said...

I love it! Although I've never seen a product like that before!
I don't know fun products for sewing but I just love DMC threads and love the ones that come in lots of colors that when you stitch with them it seems that you are leaving behind a rainbow, I love them!
Thank you for the great giveaway and the chance to win!

Wren said...

I've never heard of the texture stuff, but it sounds amazing. I've just started playing with Wonder Under, (I've always been afraid of applique--until now), and living in a small town, I haven't had much chance to explore the options.

Mel said...

I've just seen this cool product and would love to try it!!

Thanks for the chance!

VickiT said...

How fun. I've been reading about that new product and thought it looked like such fun. Great giveaway.

One of my finds that's fun to use would be Chizimi thread. You can take any fabric and with this thread in the bobbin and top stich around the fabric. Doing this in a criss cross type stitching on a long strip of organza the size of a scarf is very cool. Why? Once you are done stitching on the fabric, you hit that with some steam and it shrinks up much like this product you are giving away. It's really neat to play around with.

Digital Misfit said...

Ohhh that stuff looks like such fun!

Fusible fleece is fantastic for giving a bit of body to bags and other projects. I also love Wonder Under for appliques.

heidig@gmail.com

Sara said...

how cool, i've never heard of that stuff. i'd love to win!

Cool! Never saw this stuff before. My favorite for sewing is my magnetic seam guide. I know I should be able to guide a straight seam by now but it helps!
Thanks for the giveaway.

Wow that looks really cool!!!

I have just designed and finished my first owl toy. It was a project for my little boy who will be one in a few days! I just loved seeing his little face when I had finished it for him. That is my idea of a fun sewing project :D

Wow! What a great giveaway! Thanks! Thanks also for the great tutorial. As far as a product I like - it's one of those nifty little bias tape makers...

I had never seen that before. It is too cool. I already am getting ideas on how to use it.

I have never heard of this product before. It seems awesome. I cannot live without my rotary cutter and mat. I know they are basics but I am sooo glad that I invested in a good one!
Thanks for your generosity!

Hi! Neat product and great layout and music for your blog! Is that the soundtrack for You've Got Mail? It's my favourite movie :)

I love to sew with ric-rac. It's surprisingly versatile - do a google or blog search and look for ric-rac flowers - very cute!

This is so neat, I've never seen it before!

I'm so boring, but I love my rotary cutter. It's the best tool I own *L*

Becky said...

That is really cool!
My fun projects lately have been aprons! I'm learning (after 40+ years of sewing) to mix and combine fabrics in a much bolder fashion that ever before!@

Thanks for the lovely giveaway. My favorite product? Hmm, looking around my sewing room, I have got to say that the thing that most catches my eye is my walking foot! It's a necessity!

I'd love the chance to try out this product. I made some luggage tags recently and they're a lot of fun.

That is a neat little product you found. I love your color combo on the notebook cover. I love my clear ruler that has a lip edge to grip the cutting mat. My brother bought me a set of the mat and ruler and rotary cutter years ago as a gift and have just recently put them into use making purses.
