these are the bundles after steaming
I couldn't wait for more than a day to open them, these are sections of the cloths. I left one unbundled.
these are some of the commercial dyed results, I even dyed some white buttons
I'll be cutting some of these fabrics, laces and doilies up and making colour packs like the ones below to add to my Etsy, as well as using them in current projects.
Finally, this is what I'm working on at present, it's a commissioned piece that will be a concertina book. I'm depicting Monet's garden for the background. There will be many layers.
the background fabric was all shades of green, I've coloured some of the flowers and added free motion leaves and willow branches. I still have to work on the bridge.
my dyed yellow buttons have become flowers, I still have lots more stitching, beading etc to add.
Thanks again for visiting and commenting, I'll try not to take so long before I post again.
I really MUST have a go at this one day.....!!
I love all your dye results but have a fondness for natural dyes - the colours really glow. The dyed buttons are a great success.
Your concertina book is going to be beautiful and I'm glad you are shaking off that flu bug.
Beautiful! Those colors are so pretty.
So soft and beautiful . . . I can almost smell flowers by looking at these. I love them!
Oh my goodness but those eco dye results are fabulous! Your Monet garden will be a wonder to behold by the time it is finished.
LOVING it allllll! you sprung some memories of boiling walnut hulls for dye and husband walked in almost tasting the broth! Loverly post! ;)
I recently bought India Flints book and it is a cracker. I haven't tried any dyeing yet because I have been besotted with rusting fabrics. Just like India's process there is no way of knowing what you are going to get until you unwrap the goods. Exciting!
I love the colours that you achieve with the natural dyes. Hope that you flu bug has gone away.
Two loves produce beautiful combinations. The clear dyed cloth next to the muted eco dyed is fabulous...one compliments the other. Love the buttons!
love India Flints work too, the soft subtle colours are gorgeous. Lovely book.
I love the softer colours of the Eco dyed fabrics and your commission book is looking beautiful.
Sorry to hear you've had such a horrible bug, glad you're getting over it.
Love the dyeing results... especially the buttons!
How yo are feeling better Ro. The dye results look great! Really very vibrant! I love how Monets garden is shaping up. As always you put the Ro stamp on everything!
waue love all your dye
I can see the most wonderful faces in your eco dyed pieces.
Looks fantastic Ro. I hope you're feeling better.
ooh, you have been busy, that eucalyptus dyeing looks really exciting, Im dieing to have a go- next spring
Gorgeous. I never dyed fabric before, but I'd love to try it someday.
the natural dyed fabrics are gorgeous! the bundles look like the fabric is possibly wrapped around something....is that true? or maybe it's just a thick bundle of fabric folded and tied.
