Currently I am working on a little dumpling pouch for another Flickr Swap. This one is strawberry themed. Using my partner's favourite colours, tiny 1.5" squares have been sewn together for the exterior of the pouch. For the interior I am using some vintage floral cotton.
Also in progress today is a new brownie recipe/idea I am trying out. Based on a recipe I found in a magazine, I used my favourite brownie recipe, then swirled through caramel condensed milk (Dulce du Leche). I am just waiting for it to cook and then cool down before I sample it.
Now I have a problem with the pressing board I made. It seems that when the board gets to hot or maybe a little moist from the steam from my iron, some of the natural wood colour has come through the batting and fabric cover and stained it. Needless to say I was not terribly impressed. Has anyone else had this problem? Should I have perhaps put something else under the batting and fabric first? Any solutions/ideas would be most helpful.
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
