Can you believe it’s already June? June 4th, to be exact, which means we’re now at the 16 day countdown until the first day of summer (June 20)! This particular Pellon® gal has been caught in an ongoing downpour since Saturday morning with no hope of reprieve for at least 3 more days. Here’s hoping the rest of you are basking in some sort of late-Spring sunshine, lounging next to a garden of flowers with a light breeze on your face. *sigh* Bliss.
All talk of the impending Summer season aside, it’s time for another Monday Madness Giveaway!
This month, we’re thrilled to introduce you to a brand new product in the Pellon® line. Crafters, Sewers & Quilters… meet Fabric Magic™.
How, you might ask, would you go about using this product? For the answer, let’s take a look at a textured pillow. You would first want to cut your piece of Fabric Magic™ to match the size of your fabric. Sew the Fabric Magic™ to the wrong side of your fabric using any stitch pattern you’d like, be it simple or decorative. Lay on a flat surface (preferably an ironing board, or a pad on a hard surface.) Apply steam. Watch your fabric magically crinkle, creating a gorgeous textured piece.
This finished example was on display at our booth at Spring Quilt Market in Kansas City:
It uses a printed fabric block from the Daydreams collection designed by Stephanie Brandenburg for Camelot Cottons.
The Fabric Magic™ was stitched to the fabric block to match and enhance the pattern, after which steam was applied to achieve the gorgeous results.
A little more about Fabric Magic™:
- Shrinks fabric up to 30% to add texture and dimension to projects
- Quick and easy to use
- Results are permanent and will last through laundering
- Washer and Dryer safe

The product retails in various sizes, but today, we are giving away 1 package containing a 30″ x 1 yard piece. And, just because we love sharing the love, we’re adding in 2 yards of our new 300 thread count fabric!
