Yes there were probably several other projects that I should have been tackling, but it was a gloriously beautiful day for dyeing fabric...so other responsibilities went out the window, while the pups and I headed out to the backyard for some more experimentation!
|Setting up shop in the backyard as the pups supervised|
|Ombre Parfait created by scrunching fabric and adding layers of 4 gradated dye lots: |
mixing red, tangerine, golden yellow and sun yellow
|Rainbow of fabric and dye parfaits|
For the pink to blue colorway, I used magenta, reddish purple, eggplant and mixing blue.
After waiting 20+ hours for the batching process, I woke up super early to start rinsing/washing out my little bundles of fun.
|Morning glory series: some significant wash away of dye but still beautiful!|
|Yellow to blue with some brilliant interactions of color!|
|Saving the best for last--sunrise colorway that matches our blooming lantana!|
Yes, I am officially addicted to dyeing my own fabric. I already ordered an entire bolt of prepared for dye white fabric along with a few more procion dyes in preparation for my next day of dyeing!!
