My kids like edamame.  (They used to sell "Sponge Bob" edamame in snack packs that you could stick in a lunch box, but I haven't seen it in a long time.)  I buy frozen precooked in the shell.

I got some MOD Podge ( Embarrassed) and started pasting.  I'm having a hard time keeping the book covers from curling up at the edges.  It looks...not good.  Any tips?

Hi, I'm pretty new here and I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right forum...

I would like to make some collages on canvas for my kids' rooms but I have NO idea what I'm doing.  Can someone talk me through?  I am using book jackets from favorite books.  I intend to paint the canvases first with acrylic, then affix the paper.  I'm not sure what to use as an adhesive.  I want it to look "finished".  Is there some sort of top coat I can apply? I'm so nervous... Cheesy

Thanks so much for your help!

I love the open style of the back.  So comfortable.  And your little one can sit without getting dress all bunched up under her!

My tip is:  make spray starch and the iron your friends. Make tiny little snips around the neckline on the raw edge of the fabric about 1/2 in. apart.  It will help the fabric lay flat.  Fold it, spray some starch and iron the heck out of it.  You can hand sew basting stitches to hold it down before you machine stitch, too.  It will show you where you might have bunching or puckering.  Snip a few more notches in these areas.  Hope this helps.

Thanks!  Used simple zig-zag stitches with good results.

I've been lurking for a couple of weeks.  I saw your amazing pics and had to ask...how do you get such nicely finished edges and top-stitched seams?  Do you use a serger? Can I do that with a sewing machine?  (I'm pretty new to sewing.)
