We talked about Decoupaging the lid to our sewing machines but I found this today and I am torn between wanting to do this to my mini van and the fact that there so much great fabric that can be used for more quilts and other craft projects. What do you think?
I was laughing so hard I couldn’t sew straight!
The History of Mod Podge:
The inventor of Mod Podge®, Jan Wetstone, first developed Mod Podge® in the 1960s in her garage. The name of this now-famous mixture came from the term "Modern Decoupage." She tested it on all kinds of surfaces; she even decoupaged a Volkswagen Beetle using bed sheets! At the time, Ms. Wetstone owned an interior design shop in Atlanta. Decoupage was all the rage, but extremely time consuming. It was a tedious task to brush on layer upon layer of varnish, sanding between each coat. Ms. Wetstone "did some experimenting" in the back room of her shop and Mod Podge was born.
After sharing some of her Mod Podge- coated prints in her shop, her customers demanded that she share her decoupage secret--and the rest is history. She began offering Mod Podge kits in her shop and they were a huge success. The product was such a hit that a major Atlanta department store purchased exclusive rights to her kits.
In 1967, Mod Podge received recognition as one of four best items in the Housewares Show in Chicago, at the time, the largest show of its kind. Eventually Mod Podge was sold to Enterprise Paints and then went through a variety of owners. In 1979, Mod Podge found a permanent home with Plaid Enterprises.
Now you know more about Mod Podge than you ever wanted to know!
Best Buy called – the desktop puter is ready to go pick up. That, and a run to go pick up the package at the right post office, and mail off book orders are on the agenda, and I’m still hoping for Quilt Cam time at 9pm tonight!
Oh yes – fabric for a border is in the wash --- I hope to get that done too!
Can I buy more hours for this day?
