The liquid starch we used was the brand STA-FLO, you can find it at your local grocery store with the laundry detergent or you can purchase on amazon. You mix it all together, separate the slime into a few small bowls and add food coloring to each bowl.

The pictures were taken about a minute apart, so the whole process only takes about 15 - 20 minutes from start to finish. The "hands" in the photos belong to Amy, and the words are Andrea's. P.S. Since posting these directions, we've had a lot of questions about felted soap. Wet felting only works with wool or other protein fibers (such as llama or angora).

I also wanted the project to be inexpensive, and the materials used to be things I already had on hand. Do stuff! & Ten minute no-sew recycled t-shirt bag! Tutorial time!

do stuff! & Ten minute no-sew recycled t-shirt bag!

I got a gig teaching a recycled t-shirt project at the library a few months ago, with a request for a recycled tee bag – the only bags I’d made from tees in the past had required sturdy sewing, and I didn’t want hand-sewing to be the only thing holding the bottom closed in a class version of the bags, so I started brainstorming about some kind of hand-sewing-friendly or no-sew bag idea…. and here’s what I came up with! The simplest version of these bags is great for smaller tees, or the more light-weight kind of girl-tees – just turn the bottom of the shirt into a drawstring and tie it closed!
