Tonight we are having an activity with the young women and I need to wear a white shirt. I have a plethora of white tees, but nothing nicer. I needed a new shirt. All in the name of church. How could I refuse?
The shirt is another Simplicity 3835. It is made with an airy cotton gauze. It was a pain to sew, but it feels so good on! Seriously, it's very comfy. I lengthened the shirt a tad and cut the back piece on the fold instead of two separate pieces, which I always do.
And, it's not more bread, it's salt dough for Carter's class. They are making a map and needed salt dough donations. Luckily we got yellow this year. One year we were assigned brown and it was harder than heck to make brown that was dark enough and brown enough with food coloring.
4 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 1 1/2 cups water, food coloring.
Mix flour and salt together. Slowly add water. It is easier to mix in the food coloring if it is added to the water. Knead until it is soft and mixed together. It should have the consistency of Play-Doh. (Hopefully you won't have dry cracks in your hands, like me, and the salt won't burn you.)
