does anyone know how to permanently press material? i.e. bold pleats, perpetual wrinkles in a neat garment. or like those shirts that don't have a picture on them, but have an indent of a simple design? i'm not just talking ironing in a fold. i'm talking like, hardcore, go through the wash and still come out wrinkled. y'all know what i'm talking about, right?

please comment if you have any ideas!!

There is this stuff I got once I think at wal-mart that holds the fabric it works really well or you can make in a certain way that it lays that way

You can do this with polyester blend fabric by wrapping the fabric tightly with string and then baking it in the oven i think at about 250 degrees for about 15 minutes. I'm not positive about the temp or time but if you got some cheap fabric you could experiment. This method is how they make those textured faux silk scarves. You can tie marbles into it and get permanent bubbles on the fabric. The textures you get will be permanent and will withstand washing because the fabric will have melted slightly to hold it in place. I hope this makes sense.
