Hand dyed fabric
I decided to try dyeing some fabric. Frankly I never understood why people bother when there are so many beautiful fabrics to choose from without expending time and energy and making a mess. I really learned a lesson. It wasn't much trouble at all, I actually found it very relaxing playing with the dyes, and WOW, it was so much fun! I started with two shades of blue bottled dyes and dyed two pieces of fabric from each color. I love the results, and now I'm looking forward to making some natural dyes. There are some poke berries starting to ripen nearby and I know they will make a lovely deep purple. I am also looking forward to making some hand sewn projects with my fabrics.
