Today was one of those days.
There are a couple things that I had noted for mentioning here.
Gluing: My favourite gluing tool these days is a wooden coffee stirrer. I buy them in packages at Dollarama and there are always some that are not perfect so this is a handy use for those. As the glue dries, I just cut off that end of the stirrer.
Reminder to self: Do NOT clean out stash again! I wanted a cleaning pail to put under the sink and don’t have any left except a rusty one for the cabin. This is about the fifth time this has happened…very frustrating!
Decided to make another gown but didn't use Kleenex this time. When we were in Kelowna last spring, I found some lovely handmade paper meant for scrapbooking at one of the dollar stores. Originally thought I might use it for wallpaper but haven't yet so thought I'd try a piece of it the size of half a Kleenex for a gown. While it's quite thin, it's certainly stiffer than Kleenex so I crumpled it up then flattened it several times until it was softer.
You start with the outline of the gown on cardstock, a piece of paper the size of half a Kleenex and a strip of lace (optional)
The hanger is made from a piece of wire:
Once it's shaped, it's coated with white glue and wrapped with a length of unravelled Bunka.
