The fabric dyes come out and the fun begins!
I dyed a rainbow, so to speak!
Mixing dyes and seeing new colors bloom is such a joy.
This time I played with some tone on tones.
What great results they gave me.
Best yet, they were all from left over dyes. Once I dyed my main fabrics, I just poured off the extra liquid on these. That's why they are more pastel. They just soaked up the leftover dye. It's always a bit of a mystery as to what will happen.
Not bad results, but there are a couple I might re-dye next go round.
Here are some solid extras too. They just don't have the same punch as the tone on tone, do they?
My main goal this time was solids, but when I was at the end and had some dyes leftover, I played with dumping them together and squishing them into a small container of fabric. I do love the design that happens.
It was a good dye day. 47 yards in all!
I found a bolt of Bamboo fabric hidden in the ole sewing room, that needs to be dyed.
Hidden with it was 12 more yards of fabric ready to dye.
My quilting Sista bought me some white PFD batik... Ohh I can't wait to play with that.
and today I went and bought 12 more yards of polka dot tone on tone.
I've got a plan....
It's gonna be a Happy Summer!
