this was so fun….I am addicted now. I did it a little different than the directions I read so i would get more of a traditional batik look. After the drawing the outline with the paste and painting, I covered the entire cloth with the paste and let dry overnight, cracked it the next day and covered the entire piece with a darker paint color of teal water down. Let that dry 24 hours and then flaked it off, ironed, washed and dried. Finished by outlining with black india ink. Sewed some leftover yarn as an embellishment to finish it off.
I have been in a knitting mood and since I am no longer employeed (loving every minute of it) I decided I will make all my Christmas presents. Found on Pinterest (of course), traced it to Craftsy, and downloaded the free pattern. I couldn’t find the yarn she recommended (Joanns sells it in my area but I haven’t made it to that side of town), so I used Lion Brand Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton. The yarn is BEAUTIFUL, but expensive. Even the check out lady commented. $8 for 3 ounces. I had a coupon of course, but still pricey for me. It made 2 cloths with a little left over.
You can find the link to Craftsy on my Pinterest Board.
I used a 10 ounce package fresh shelled edamame (green soybeans), 1 tbsp olive oil, grated parmesan cheese and salt, baked15 min. in a 400 oven. I stirred at 8 minutes – really the only one that were crunchy were the 1/2 ones, I should have left them in longer but…..I was hungry
