DIRECTIONS FOR STARCH:
Dissolve 1/4 cup starch in 1/2 cup of cold water. Boil about 2 cups of water, remove from flame, then slowly stir the starch mixture into boiling water stirring constantly. Place back on flame until it thickens. As soon as starch is cool enough to handle, clip articles and squeeze starch through them thoroughly. Wring out extra starch. The articles should be wet with starch but there should be none in the spaces. Pin doily in position according to size and leave until thoroughly dry. Place crocheted bowl over a bowl 9 inches in diameter across top and about 4 1/2 inches deep and leave until thoroughly dry.
