Puckered Pampered Pooch

I decided to try out the Texture Magic I had bought about a month ago, so I gathered together my Moda Pampered Pooch yardage, charm pack, ruler, marker and of course, the Texture Magic. I cut a square of the fabric and TM that was larger than the actually size I needed. I drew lines on the back of the TM, pinned it to my fabric square, and then straight stitched in back and forth. Placing the fabric TM side up, I steamed the entire square without letting the iron touch the fabric.
The end result was a puckered piece of fabric the same size as a square in my charm pack. Now I just have to figure out what to do with my little squares. Hmmm....
