starch

I am using linen and cotton fabrics to create the brooches for my new collection of accessories . Before making them I have to starch the fabric to make sure it will hold its shape and travel well from Bolivia to Kenya.
It is a time consuming process and not so fun, but there is no other way to do it. First I dip the fabric in the starch and water mix, then I let it dry and iron it. After ironing I can start making the petals for the flowers.
