11  Soda Bread in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Faesissa on: February 02, 2011 11:47:58 PM
Last night, my mum and I decided we would try to make soda bread. She had already bought all of the ingredients the day before and yesterday we were trying our first soda bread.

For our first try, I think it went pretty well overall. My family think so anyway because there's only one end piece left now.

For those of you who might want to try this,
Soda Bread Recipe:
6 ounces of self raising flour
6 ounces of plain wholemeal flower
1/2 a tea spoon of bicarbonate of soda
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
1 pot of buttermilk (about 280ml)

1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
2. Put all the dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir.
3. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
4. Pour the buttermilk into the well and stir with a fork.
5. Knead briefly to form it into a round ball.
6. Place on a floured baking tray.
7. Cut a cross on top.
8. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Our oven is a fan oven so you may need to adjust the time or temperature accordingly.

12  Black Dotty Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Faesissa on: October 02, 2010 06:48:17 AM
So I made an apron for excess fabric I had lying around my home. It took me about 4 and a half hours to make it from scratch. I searched around on the internet and didn't find any patterns I really like the look of so I just sketched the basic pattern shape onto a big piece of paper from my art apron.
The photographs:

My basic hemming skills -

Originally, I was also going to add a pocket and pleats to the apron, but I thought for my first apron, this would be a good place to stop. My sewing machine started to act up after about 2 hours as well (I think it would have been too annoying to try adding more onto it probably).

13  My accidental Franken-heart in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Faesissa on: November 28, 2009 07:04:01 AM
I was trying to make a dodecahedron ball, but in the 'early' morning I managed to misplace one of the pentagons. Seeing as I could not be bothered (still tired) to try and find my quick-unpick from wherever my friend put it last, I decided to keep hand sewing it together. I call this creation my Franken-heart because the only thread I had at my desk was a pale green and my fabric was white and now the green thread is showing through.

(P.S. This is my first post on Craftster and also, I put this here instead of Stitch and Botch because I think it turned out well)
