shrinking fabric

Have you heard of shrinking fabric?  It is a fabric that has a grid running through it and when washed in hot water and put through the dryer it shrinks up.  Pictured above I have stitched some synthetic fabrics to it.  I love the crinkled texture that you get!  I understand that synthetic fabric works the best but I would like to see what happens with cottons and silks.
