W.W.W. -Cooking Fabric

I know, I know......... I am late getting posted today.
So, do you want to know what I have been working on?
First of all, I was cooking some fabric.
No, not to eat either. lol
I like to put fabric in my coffee mix and actually boil it on the stove.
I think it gives it a really great old, worn look the longer you cook it.

While I was waiting on my fabric to finishing cookin',
I peeled a bunch of apples to make Apple Crisp today.

This is the best recipe I have ever used.

10 cups all-purpose apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup water

2 cup quick-cooking oats
2 cup all-purpose flour
2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C).
Mix apples with the white sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and ground cinnamon together, and sprinkle over apples. place into 9x13 pan.Pour water evenly over all.
Combine the oats, 1 cup flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45 minutes-60 minutes.
It will not last long. :)

Then in between cooking fabric and peeling apples,
I touched up some paint in the bathroom.

Whew, it's been a long day.
I am off to see what everyone is doing over at Leslie's, "Whatcha Working on Wednesday".


  1. The apple crisp sounds wonderful. I will have to try it. This may be a stupid question but how long do you cook the fabric....just until the desired look?

  2. Hmmm...I'm going to have to try boiling my fabric. I ususally just soak mine, but this could speed up the process? Thanks for sharing your idea. ~Natalie

  3. The apple crisp sounds so good! I have to ask-is that a olive green pot you have your fabric cooking in? I have never seen that color and I love it!Do you have a whole set?


  4. Cooking the fabric? Now, I do have to try that!!!

    Olive green cookware? I bet you got that during the late 70's? LOL

    The apple crisp looks just wonderful!
