Machine Sewn Reverse Applique Wrap using Terial Magic

I have discovered magic, Terial Magic that is.


At Quilt Market last Fall I was introduced to Terial Magic a liquid fabric stabilizer that makes knits behave like a woven. I was so excited to hear what this product could do that I participated in a live product demo. Seeing the potential for speedy reverse applique I shared my plan with Laurie, the demonstrator and brand manger. She asked if I would be interested in a collaboration to show how I would use the product.

Today, I am the guest blogger on the Terial Arts blog. Pop over there to see the steps I took to make this fast and easy reverse applique project.


What I love is, the treated fabric becomes stiff after the application of the Terial Magic allowing the wrap to be sewn on a home sewing machine. This drastically reduces the time and effort involved in completing a project like this without hand-sewing. 



To further test the possibilities of this stabilizer, I sewed the motifs using silver metallic thread. I loaded it as normal and took no precautions against twisting, breaking or bobbin tangles I have heard occurs with metallic thread. There were no issues at all with the treated fabric! 


I am so thrilled with the end result. This wrap stitched up quickly and could be done in a week of evenings with no stress.



 Be sure to visit the Terial Magic page to find out how you can make your own.


Happy Sewing,
Bianca

  2. This turned out beautifully! I like how the light shines through the cut away sections. I totally could have used this a week ago! I'm working on a reverse applique version of Jalie's drop pocket cardigan with a leaf motif I drew on the fronts. I did some tests, and I like the hand stitching more than the machine which means it's gonna take forever! I will give this product a go the next time I take on such a project.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! I love my hand-sewn versions as well, but needed a time saving method in my life. :) The Texas winters are so short, I could not invest the time for a cold weather project. Terial Magic made this a breeze!

    1. Thanks Lisa, I was worried I wouldn't love it as much as my hand-sewn pieces. The metallic threads adds the texture and dimension hand-sewing would have.

    1. Thanks Tina! I love that Sulky thread! I have it in many cool colors and can't wait to use the variegated variety on another wrap. I am glad you are excited about the product, I was immediately sold when I saw it work. I will put a lifetime supply in my next contract! Thanks for the tip! 😁

  5. Your stole is divine! I made my Alabama Chanin skirt on the sewing machine, too. But the Terial Magic would have made it so much easier.

    Here are some pix of my skirt construction and finished product.
