Project Description

The class project consists of two steps:

1. Gather and prepare all your necessary tools. You will need to get your hands on some beeswax (preferably in pellets) and you will need some quilting fabric. Both of these can take some time to gather. The fabric has to be washed twice and ironed before you can use it. You will also need pinking shears (zigzag scissors).

2. Make the wraps. I walk you through the different steps and explain potential pitfalls so you will end up with perfect eco food wraps. The total time for this step depends very much on the number of wraps you want to make. On average one wrap will take about 15 min.
