To do the texture, I used 1/2 package of Texture Magic (18"x47" package). I make cross-hatching marks (going on the diagonal) every 1/2" across the entire sheet. Then, with the texture magic on the backside of your good fabric, I sewed every line. This took an hour or so, and lots of white thread! My main fabric was bridal satin, and it sewed beautifully! After I had all the lines sewn, I used my steam iron to steam the fabric, and voila! The texture magic shrinks 30% in all directions to create this wonderful textured fabric.
