Back quilted with a nice batik.
Sunday night I used the dyes that I have and some Kona White cotton and dyed some 1/2 yard pieces. The dyes are straight colors, no mixing to make the color. Here are the results.
this wonderful book. She had 8 or 10 pieces of fabric that were dyed in the same dye bucket. She explained the process. So tonight I tried it with the dyes that I have. I used the same dyes as I did on the pieces above. I mixed up 1/2 tsp dye in 1 cup water with 1 1/2 tsp soda ash. I put one piece of fabric in a bucket and poured the rose red dye over the fabric. I added another piece and added the next dye. I did this for 8 pieces of fabric. I don't remember the order of the dyes. The results are Wonderful. I let them sit for 2 hours, then rinsed the fabric, washed and dryed and WOW!!! Each piece is amazing. They all have such a variety of color combinations it is amazing. I can't wait to try it with some other colors.
I will try more and change the order of the dyes. I am sure the results will be different and just as wonderful.
