How to make soap? ( Basic )

~~ Cut the block of soap glycerine into small square pieces and place into a microwave safe bowl.
~~ Heat on high for 40 sec or until the soap is fully melted.

Heating time will depend on the amount of soap being melted and strenght of microwave

~~ Once Glycerine is melted into a liquid form, add the few drops of desired soap colouring and fragrance. Mix Well.

~~ If you happy with colour, consistency pour the soap mix into moulds. Leave to set for about 1 hour.
When set,push out the soap out of moulds. They should slide out easily.

Handmade soaps are really simple gifts to make, By using different scented oils or dried flowers you can customize the soaps to your own preferred scent.

Follows the steps to make your own pillows :

1. CUT
Prepare fabric pieces  into squares. Cut them into any desired shape.Each square must be cut into same shape. Following some ideas :









2. SEW
 You can make any pillows in any size and shape you like.  If you have cut the material into strips or triangles then sew them into squares again.
Then sew the squares together ( using 5mm stitching ). Please note that if you are sewing an uncut
square to one that had been cut and sewn together again, then you will need to trim the uncut
square to the same smaller size. Press seams flat before quilting
   
3. QUILT
 Cut a piece of the dacron sheet provided into the same size as your patchwork. Pin the dacron to the back of the patchwork to hold it in a place. Then sew the two pieces together by making
small in out stitches through both layers by hand.
Sew along the outline of those piece or you can follow any design you choose.

4. MAKE A PILLOW
Next turn your patchwork quilt into a pillow. First cut a piece of calico cotton sheet the same size as your patchwork quilt. next place the patchwork face down onto the calico sheet and pin the pieces together to hold it in place.
Then turn it inside out and stuff with the polyester pillow stuffing provided. Then sew the open end together by folding the raw edges inside and sew along the edge with topstich.

5. DECORATE with little YO-YO's

Let's paint your own!

Fabric paints are now available in most art shops.
They come in various forms - tubes, jars, etc.
My favorite brand of fabric paint is "Fabric Fun" of  Pentel.
The price inexpensive (around $15.00)  for 15 brilliant colors!
or you might decide to buy any brand for just several colors or whole set.

What you can decorate :
1. Sneakers
   If you have a plain one, decorate it! Its a good idea to sketch it in your design
   before you painting it.
2. A hat
   Don't use nylon hat! Choose a straw or fabric hat (cotton hat).
3. Pillowcases,Handkerchiefs and tshirts
   You could design animals,fruits etc Some ideas - cut out pencil shapes or
   use a sponge and a tooth brush

Have fun!
