Fabric Dyeing

I decided that there is no time like the present to take my dye supplies out of storage and have a play.

I thought that I didn’t have a lot, and I could use up what I have and be done with it.

I thought wrong.

I have lots of dyeing supplies in storage.

And I am enjoying time out of the sewing studio (and away from housework and weeding) playing around with color.

I also thought that my dyes are so old that they will have lost their intensity.

Wrong again.

I know the close ups don’t do it justice (I had my camera settings wrong), but the next photo does. Lots of deep, rich color!

And these are cocoons. Why? I don’t know. I must have had an idea to use these once upon a time.

At any rate…they take the dye well!

Never stop playing!

  1. At some point, I would like to try some dyeing. I’ve done shibori in a class, but I’d like to try some of this. What glorious color!
