First Snow Dye of the Season!

I saw minus 5 degrees Fahrenheit this morning. Brrrr!  I did this batch yesterday and ironed it this morning. I left the next batch to do its’ magic out in the slightly heated garage overnight but I actually brought it in to finish because the snow was not finished melting.

I usually mix up my dyes and squirt it onto the snow, but this time I sprinkled the dyes atop the piled high snow that looked like a miniature mountain lying on my fabric. I think I like it better because it left some textural effects here and there.

Such a color departure from the natural dyes I’ve been using!

    This is so cool! What a wonderful idea. I assume you place the dye on the snow, set your article on top to take up the dye, and then iron? These are beautiful!

    Hi. I have a question that I hope you can help me with. I have made a quilt top with many different “colors” of muslin and I was thinking of dyeing the whole thing to get a less annoying look. It just looks so patchy at the moment. I was thinking of tea dyeing it from a spray bottle but I am not sure. I really don’t want to have to wash the whole thing after I dye it. Any suggestions? I know you think outside the box and thought perhaps you might have an idea for me. (We met a number of years ago at a class in Manchester.) Thanks. Diane Kelley
