I might just use the beeswax, we've got a honey farm less then 1 mile away, and any kind of craft store that is actually stocked with a variety of crafts is about 4 hrs away. 
And the applique idea is brilliant,  although I already bought the white cotton curtains.  so the first method will have to do.  It will also give me a reason to hide in the basement. lol

Thank you!

Okay, So I bought a bunch of white cotton curtains for the bedrooms in our home.  In my sons room I want to make a border on the bottom of the curtain  to look like a racing flag.  I want the whole curtain to be black (found out on these forums which blacks are the best Cheesy )  But along the bottom I want there to be white squares.  Now, heres the question:
~~~ Can, and how, can I use wax to block the places I want to stay white?  And what kind of wax can I use? ~~~
~~~ Once I've put  the wax on, how do I get it out? ~~~

Any advice would be appreciated Cheesy

P.S.  I might want to do something a little more intricate on our curtains, using the same kind of technique.  Hopefully theres one out there that would be usefull for both projects Smiley

Thank you so much Jazzturtle.   I'm an esthetician (manicures pedicures body wraps etc....)  so I also need my hands for work.  If spindle spinning was murder on your otherwise healthy hands and arms, then best not chance it with my not so healthy hands and arms (I've got pinched nerves in my shoulders and neck, leading to numbness and pain if I over use them)

Looks like hubby might be getting me a wheel for christmas... though he doesn't know it yet!! lol

Still I might go buy some carded wool and start making rovings, just for fun, and something too do Cheesy

so, in searching youtube for videos to see if i could do this (I have tender wrists and hands... which sucks cause I love to knit and sew)  anyway,  I came across drop spindle spinning.  Have you done this, is there much versatility too it or is it a one tension, one twist type thing?

oh another question.

If I get started, and my 3yr old decides to, oh, i dunno, say pour himself a glass of milk and pours it all over the floor,  Can I stop and pick it up where I left off, or does one skein (skien?) have to be done all at the same time?
