Fabric Dyeing Class: Results

I went to my first class ever today! Fabric dyeing with some folks from the local modern group.  We learned different folds and how to mix the powdered dyes.  I'm pretty tickled with my results. I did 4 fat quarters and a bamboo rayon scarf.

I plan to use these FQs as focal fabrics for quilts, somehow.

The scarf is for my mom. She starts chemo this week so we are looking for head-cover alternatives.  We were fortunate that she only had a small cancer and they caught it early, but she still has to go through chemo and radiation. We'd appreciate all you good thoughts and prayers :)

  1. Your fabrics look great. I will keep your Mom in my heart <3

  2. Great job with the fabric dyeing and shibori techniques! Hope all goes as well as possible with your mom's treatment, and that she has a speedy recovery.

  3. Such beautiful fabrics! They will be a fantastic addition to any project. Sending healing thoughts for your mom!

  4. Amazing designs. We're these on silk or cotton muslin? Was the dye Procion dye?

  5. I can't believe that you can make fabrics even more beautiful through dyeing. I also want to try it. :-) I like the one you made for you mom. I hope that she's doing fine now.
