I am sorry about the potatoe stamp drying out but I interestingly shaped blobs are kind of cool too! I am so not worried about it. I know that whatever you make for me is going to be great.
I had an idea for you that I just thought of yesterday so while I actually have a weekend that isn't over scheduled I am going to try it out. Hopefully it will work cuz in my mind it is awesome. I just hope it actually turns out that way.
I will post more on Monday to let you know how the fabric faired.
Hope your travels are going well and that you're having fun.
