*** Home Made Starch Recipe from Paula;
Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch w/ teaspoons of cold water in a 2-cup heat proof glass measuring cup. Boil 1-cup water and add to mixture, stir constantly. Mix will turn chalky white to milky translucent. Let cool to room temp, then add water to make 2 cups of solution. Put into spray bottle and shake well before each use. Because of no preservatives a new batch will need to be made every week.
See how that works for ya. I wonder if you can make 1/2 batches?
Almost to stitchin'
