Into the Dye Pots

I have been playing in the dye pots again. This time, a few friends and I hired a teacher. Last week was one of the hottest on record in the Seattle area, but there we were outside in the sun. I finally got smart and started my day at 6AM.

I’m still not an expert dyer, and probably never will be, but I had fun and dyed about 45 yards of fabric. I even love most of it!
Here is about half, ironed and ready to put away.
Here is the other half, waiting to be ironed.

I even managed to dye some pearl cotton. 
If you want to dye your own fabric, I recommend taking a class. But if you are adventurous, gather a couple of friends and play. There is lots of information on the web.
