Something completely different and non sewing related today - soap making. It has been a couple of years since I made some soap. You really need a house to yourself for a few hours to make a batch and I haven't had that for a long time. The big three were at their grandparents last week and Chris took Olive out a few times so I could make some soap.
Home made soap is a bit like hand knitted socks, once you try it you never want to go back to the store bought stuff.
I learnt to make soap using a kit from Aussie Soap Supplies and I make a couple of variations of their basic recipe.
We have a few of those shaped silicone cake moulds that are useless for making cakes in so I tried them as cake moulds. I think the girls will like this soap - it might encourage them to actually use it!Soap Crafting recently. It is a great book on soap making, it thoroughly explains the whole process and has some recipes I would like to try. I can't see myself getting into the whole intricate colouring thing, but I like to see what different combinations of oils do.
