I have just made Jake a Shark to lie in while watching TV and Jess of course wants a mermaid one. Made myself a top and Jess a reversible bucket hat. She is funny about clothes and the dresses I made were never worn. Hope your family trouble resolves soon Cindy,

Making clothes for little girls has turned out to be a lot of fun! Who knew? lol

Just when I think my mojo is returning, poof it disappears again. I think I had more time to create before we retired. LOL. Now (as of the last coiple weeks) I am loosing my big sewing area. It wasn't totally put together, but we now have DD and enterourage (sp) living with us. This includes a 3 yr old. The area that would have been my studio is now theirs. Hopefully this is temporary until they can get on their feet. (Long story)  But at least we can provide a safe place for them. So I make do until later. Have been making clothes for a little girl right now. A new technique to try would be fun and a nice change.

I think our mojo's taken a vacation and forgot to take us along! LOL  I'm starting to rearrange/paint/muck out my sewing space. Maybe when that is done my mojo will return from its trip.

Linda, mine's  been missing for quite a while, too! lol

We did something in HS art class using Liquitex and colored tissue paper to "enhance" our paper Mache projects. My memory of the stuff was that it came in matte or gloss and smelled pretty much like white glue. I wonder if that would work as well (or if the stuff still exists! HS was a VERY long time ago! lol)

Hi everyone!  Linda...you are correct...we did play with paper fabric and it has been a long time since we tried something new......soooooo...any ideas?  I have recently retired so I should have more "play time"  If anyone has any suggestions...feel free...

My download on the computer is so slow I haven't been able to pull it up yet. Sounds fun though

if you go to technique no 3 up in the discussions box we had a try at something very similar back in June 2011. Lots of fun back then don't know where my mojo has gone.

Comment by Gwen/OH on July 12, 2016 at 1:28am

I just read through the process Sharon, I agree with Cindy, way cool!  It sounds like a lot of fun. I think I'll give it a try too!
