Creative Space - the humble iron
It is not often the humble iron features in my life, I even manage to avoid it on most sewing projects. But it has been getting a lot of use lately after I finally found the packet of long-ago-purchased-and-then-lost fabric stencils. One of the first projects was to use one of the many flour bags we have accumulated to make another bread bag.
This one is for storing the no knead bread loaves, and to make it even easier to make I've transferred the recipe onto the back of the bag. I should have washed all the flour out of the bag first, hence the brown marks. It all came out in the wash though.
Unfortunately we never need to store this bread for long as it disappears rather quickly around these parts. I just stitched the top edge over & added a drawstring and heh presto....a new bread bag.
Now after an evening of chopping fruit with my mum the house is filled with the sweet scent of cumquats boiling for another batch of cumquat marmalade.......it goes so well with freshly baked bread!
More creative spaces over at Kristy's.......the force behind the fabulous quilt project
