The first day of marbling for the Summer. Light Green now gets to cure for 16 days before it gets washed, dried and ironed.
My most recent project is a fun swingy pullover top. Yes, I have the pattern on my website. I started with PFD White Cotton fabric and a Tone on Tone White Cotton Fabric.
Hand Dyed everything Blue Green. I love the variety of hand dying the cotton fabric, it turns Tone on Tone into something really fun and unique.
Finished top, yippie, had the right light for a good photo.
Back, fun to wear and fits nicely. The pattern was easy to make.
Now, for a behind the scenes look. This is my favorite place to take photos of samples. Braving the snow was easy after digging out my gaiters.
Beautiful if you are working from home.
Yes, it is snow dying time again. We ended up with a couple of inches and that means it is time to snow dye. I love watching the snow melt and the colors happen. The above pile of snow received a rainbow of dye colors.
Greens, Blues, and Yellows, I think. Once they start to melt it can be a challenge to figure out what colors I used.
Ever wondered how Over Dying happens? I elevate my drip trays about 1 to 1 1/2 inches, using scrap lumber. I should note that everything gets dye on it, so the scrap lumber now stays in my studio. Melted snow changes and varies in color, surprises happen.
Fire – Red, Orange, and Yellows are ready for their rinse.
Earthtones ready for their rinse. Grass, twigs or gravel do not affect the color.
