I can't post pictures yet, but I finished a few things.  A child's hat and scarf set in this wonderful bright red mohair-like acrylic blend I got on clearance, and a men's scarf in heather green, with a moss stitch border.  I didn't have any patterns or templates, just a vague idea -- and my imagination usually far outstrips my skills -- so it's nice to have such pretty tangible results.

I've got a couple more projects in the works, so hopefully I'll have enough posts to post a picture by the time they're done.

Yippee Brena!


JM2: here's the image:



The brown things are seeds, obviously.

I'll see if I can get to a photo tute of this soon.

was there ever a tute of this? is this plantable paper?

I never made a photo tute of it, but here's what I did.

Things you'll need:
Blender
Cheap toilet paper
Can of sprinkle seeds (I got a can at Wal-Mart for under $3)
Water
Plastic Mold (I used a soap mold from Hobby Lobby)

Get out your blender and toilet paper. Rip pieces of the toilet paper (not exact, but I used about one inch squares) and place in the blender. When the blender is filled with TP (you don't have to compact it), pour in enough water to coat. Repeat until the blender is half filled with wet TP and some water. Put on the top and blend. I would blend mine on high for about five minutes, as I sprinkled a few seeds in each mold (just a few).

Turn the blender off and sprinkle seeds in the paper pulp. Reach in and grab a handful of the glop, squeeze to remove excess water, and push into a mold. Repeat until all molds are filled with paper. Sprinkle a few more seeds on the top, and place somewhere to dry (takes 1-3 days).

When it's dry, the pulp should pull away from the edges. This didn't always happen but you can carefully pry them with a finger nail. Tear off any uneven edges and you're done!

If you have too much water in your pulp when you mold it, you'll be picking out sprouts when you remove them!

Why TP? I've tried almost every other form of paper and none blended well. I bought cheap toilet paper from Dollar General (four rolls for $1) and it worked the best all around.

Sorry about the delay. I haven't been on this site in forever. I'll try again to get a picture tute for this.
