    This picture is made using sewing supplies. Can you guess what they are?

    Some one had lots of time on their hands! I will post what it is after people have had a chance to quess for a couple days.

    Looks as if they used 'cheese cloth' I did ghost once and they looked very similar.
    Intersting object. Whoever did this has more time than most people.

    Looks like it could be batting coated in something to make it stiff when dried.

    Made with all sewing supplies.
    Hmmm, how about Texture Magic and toile or netting or pellon or cheesecloth?

    Wow its to early for such a difficult question. I guess my guess would be threads and lots of lots of starch and glue. :shock:

    Some of it looks like lace. Don't have a clue what the rest is made of.

    It looks like fabric or and threads soaked in water soluable stablilzer for stiffening and then shaped like stalagmites or stallactites in those caves. That is what this reminds me of any ways. Have fun guessing, I'm sure I did not guess it right either. Huggies, Fay

    I would have said cheese cloth and glue, but you said that was wrong. How about bee's wax and cheese cloth :roll: :?:
