Green Idea 3 - Making Your Own Deodorant...2

I have been using home made deodorant; 1 part of baking soda mixed with 1 part of corn starch and a few drops of Tea tree oil.   It is working well for me but I thought I should also try the beeswax version since I have some beeswax at home.

Found this recipe:   --  (note:  should  add shea butter after the beeswax is melted.)

My new home made deodorant.

I don't have a deodorant stick case, so I just leave it in the small glass container I mixed the ingredients.     Happy with the result so far...

If you don't have shea butter, I suggest you use a recipe without it:  - don't make too much the first time, half the recipe..  :)

Many more recipes here:

For those who wants to buy beeswax,  please contact Sylvia at sweetprettystuff at gmail dot com.   She has unrefined beeswax from US at RM15 per 100 gram.

Bag Project 11

This is my Jan 2012 Alice Peng sew along homework..    :)

1) Needle size 18 works really well for the thickness...  though I learnt this sometime ago but due to laziness, sometimes I don't change the needle.

2) I used  Plastic sheet to trace the pattern and clover seam allowance tool to add seam this time.  A lot easier and the size of the bag is more accurate.

See here for self explanatory pictures about the tool:

Useful notes from Alice Peng about sewing bags but in Mandarin though:

Bye now..
