Fabric with Cling Wrap

A few days ago, Linda F on the FDA list posted a link to a tutorial she had found making fabric from scraps ironed between two sheets of cling wrap (tutorial here -

My local grocery store had two colors, violet and rose, so I tried the violet. I realized that I had a lot of prints in my mixture, which were only printed on one side, so when I did the second layer, I focused on covering the back side and obscuring the unfinished aspects. I think I want to try making one where I could experiment a little bit with folding/layering/pleating the cling wrap before ironing. If you try this, make sure you have the parchment paper over the whole thing, so you don't get cling wrap on your iron.

I like the way this looks! Hmm ... Even I may attempt making some! Does it stick or get 'gooey? Intriguing!
