Beeswax Wraps.......

In my previous post I said I'd tell you about the fun workshop I went to make Beeswax Wraps .....















These are the ones I made at the workshop and we were able to take home the rest of special pre-mixed Beeswax.  sew we could make some more .

I cut and washed some fabrics and have made wraps to share with my DD....





With the baking paper under my fabric I grated the wax ,


















then spread the it and put another piece of baking paper over the top making sure the waxy of the paper part is on top.


with the iron on wool setting gently spread the wax,



















till all of fabric is covered ,






Remove from between parers and let dry......














I had fun making more until there was only a tiny piece of wax left









Now I must away and do some domestic chores.......😒

Happy Stitching.

Hugs Maria 😊

  3. What a coincidence, I saw beeswax wraps in the grocery store yesterday for the first time, never heard of them before. Tell us how they work when you have experimented with different foodstuff.
