In reality you could call this my 4th last hurrah. I said when I finished dyeing a large group of fabrics almost 3 weeks ago I was done for the season.
Well, if you read this blog regularly you know I did a dyeing session when my friend Suzie visited and then a few days later my friend Peggy and I did some experimental dyeing.
When Peggy and I finished I still had a lot of dye left to use so I made it a priority to use if all up – 28 pieces of dyed fabric later – I used it all!
I also used all the fabric I had prewashed to dye in anticipation of the current dyeing sessions.
I particularly loved this as it was a real sunset coloration for this Sunset Kind Of Girl. I had not achieved anything like these colors previously.
I used a variety of techniques creating these fabrics.
Shibori, over dyeing, parfait dyeing, ice dyeing and some unique folding techniques created these fabrics.
This was one of the folded ones.
This used a variety of techniques.
I have heard of ice dyeing, but I made up my own method of doing it. I was thrilled with the results. I was so pleased the way this one turned out. Like many fabrics, it is even better in person. You just can’t quite duplicate the effect on a computer.
