I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed this. I started it tonight. I finished it tonight. It is quite simply brilliant. It’s touching, heartwarming, funny, sad. I laughed. I cried. I can’t wait for the next season.
If it is as tasty as it looks, I will add the recipe tomorrow! So stop back by and see if it was a success!
So easy to make!
I experimented with using soy wax. I wasn’t pleased with the outcome. It didn’t stick to my bowl and felt greasy rather than sticky.
If you want to give it a try, here is what worked for me:
Set your oven to 200F. Cover a baking sheet with foil and parchment paper or just parchment. Cut your desired shape/size fabric with pinking shears. Place your fabric on the lined baking sheet. I used 1/8 tsp coconut oil (keeps the fabric malleable after it dries) to 1 1/2 cup beeswax pellets* (I buy mine from Soapers Choice) melted together and stirred well to combine. Brush the melted wax/oil mixture on with a brush you don’t intend to use for anything else! If the beeswax begins to harden on your fabric before you are finished, pop the baking sheet/fabric in the oven for a minute or two and finish brushing until your fabric is completely coated with a thin coat of the beeswax/oil mixture. Remove the beeswax wrap from the parchment and place it on a clean sheet of parchment to cool and dry. VOILA!
I am thinking if I ever open my etsy shoppe again, I might add these.
*a few websites suggested using pine resin to keep the wraps sticky, but honestly, I didn’t want any scent but beeswax and I wasn’t sure the pine resin would be odorless.
Until next time, I am…
of the holidays! It was a wonderful month of December. So wonderful I didn’t find time to make a post. Husband made it home December 6th and we had a lovely, lovely time while he was home.
I am kicking off the new year (2020????) with simplifying, recycling, decluttering and preparing for us to downsize our empty nest. I am really looking forward to the next chapter of what has already been a blessed life.
We are starting to look for a smaller home and preparing this one to put on the market. We have a beautiful home and we have loved living here, but it is time to find a place suited for two people. We also have to think toward Husband’s retirement in a few years. So, the winds of change are a-blowin!
I hope to be sharing some more sewing, crafting and baking posts very soon. I stay very busy I am just not sure what it is I do all day!
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, I am…
