Fun Dyeing Fabric....

19th August 2017

Every morning as I drink my lemon water  I check e-mails, Facebook, Pinterest, my blog and BBC news, a creature of habit...

...I now have 999 followers on Pinterest and am quite excited!

This morning I found a pin by Deborah O'hare of Quilt Routes about dyeing fabrics and had to have a go!!

I only had Brusho to use...


....cotton fabric sprayed with water then painted using Turquoise, Orange and Ultra Marine diluted in water...


...next you scrunch and roll and leave to dry...


...orange..


....scarlet....


...yellow...


yellow, scarlet, turquoise, ultra marine...


...rolled and left to dry, will have to wait until tomorrow to see results!!


A couple of years ago I bought a bundle of silk strips and they have just sat in my stash....


....used the liquid left to dye some strips....



....think this is linen scrim, love the texture...


....used the Brusho to dye, the fabric which was more receptive when  washed and rinsed, I actually sprinkled the shades of green onto the wet fabric...



....rather like this, cotton I used to clean the brush and wipe the plastic!


The most difficult part of this dyeing process is waiting for the fabric to dry before I can see the results!!!


Visit tomorrow....
