#needleworkmonday : #steemitmamas & kids diy fabric and sugarwater

in needleworkmonday •  9 months ago  (edited)


I went to the fabric market because I needed fabric for a new project for #Needleworkmonday and Christmas.


I bought this, a voile with Christmas 🎄 and 🎅 that the kids cut from the fabric and make a whole bunch ready for the next step.


The fabric market has a few places where the fabrics are really cheap. I will do another blog and explain more.


Here you see the cut pieces, the trees and the Santa’s.


Than you need water and sugar. A lot of sugar because we are going to make them into tree hangers they are needed for our tree. You put the fabric in water just 2 cm in a plate and put in like 12 sugar cubes that you get sugar water that when it dries up hardens the fabric.


Here we have already 10 made by little D and me. We had fun and the result is so nice. When you need a diy project for the holidays.


Now I hear you asking : BUT BRITT WHY IN THE NEEDLEWORKMONDAY TAG? Well after this you put a little gold string or something you like that fits the new fabric ornaments so you can hang them in the tree with the famous needle 😉

Thank you for stopping by, its highly appreciated, and please let me know your vision on steemit life in general.

Really? Stiffening with sugar? Doesn't that attract bugs (I guess not in Netherlands... but in Australia it might be a bad idea!).

how exactly do you do that Britt? I have never heard of that before.

you need water and sugar. A lot of sugar because we are going to make them into tree hangers they are needed for our tree. You put the fabric in water just 2 cm in a plate and put in like 12 sugar cubes that you get sugar water that when it dries up hardens the fabric. You can also do it with white glue when that dries it’s see through and hard and than you have hangers

wouldn't that invite the ants?If your goal is to harden them, why not try decoupage glue? Or if you do not have any glue just mix equal parts white glue with water. I think it will harden the fabric too. I know it does my paper....

Haven’t tried with the kids and glue I try to find other ways sugar is washable but I can try to get glue that’s was able from clothes may it harder than sugar thanks I will let you know I have about 60 to go for the tree

no worries Britt. Just mix a drop of vinegar or two to keep the bugs out. Any type of vinegar will do. Essential oil is great too!

How cool that you know so much

What a great project for the kids to have fun doing. Hardening the fabric with sugar sounds like a sweet idea. 😊

A very safe idea , with glue they will ruin my table and their clothes

What did you like the most ?

So clever!!! I have tried to stiffen my crocheted hangers with a kind of glue and this was not successful: it was neither stiff enough nor completely transparent. I will research your sugar method and try it out... its also much cheaper than the glue.
Thank you for the tip 🌈

Cheaper but with the kids i used glue once and the table and clothes were so difficult to clean this is washable,
Thank for dropping by

Creative Work....

Well thank you do you diy ever?

not much....some time...

Christmas is such a magical time of year! And sugar cubes are so stinking cool haha
