I have two special BFFs who love to work with fabrics and all that that entails as much as I do.
About a month ago after a chance remark by one of them I gave each one of them half of a Dye Dog.
Robbie took this picture of hers before she did anything to it. She said the colors weren’t true but you can see the pattern in it. Beth’s had a similar pattern but more subtle. I cut them both from one piece of fabric.
What a fantastic composition Beth did using her Dye Dog as the background. It is so lovely and tasteful.
This is a close-up of Beth’s piece. It you look closely you can see the rosy colored areas that were part of the manipulating when I dyed it.
This is Robbie’s Dye Dog. She loves handwork and comes up with so many unique ways to use it. The addition of the yellow really took this to a new level. If you look closely you also can see the original marks from how I manipulated this fabric.
It’s fun to see two totally different compositions which started with such similar pieces from one of my Dye Dogs. It is obvious they both put a lot of thought, design skills and construction details in their pieces.
I feel like a proud mother since they used my original Dye Dog fabric.
