Fabric Patterning with Wax Resist »
Type of item: Home Decor
Pima cotton, fiber reactive dyes, assorted stamps
What was your inspiration?
I really liked the sampler quilt in the videos and wanted to create fabrics I could use like that
What are you most proud of?
It was a lot of fun trying out different tools to see what marks they made. My favorite was the lines I cut in the potato stamp. Most of these colors are not ones I would choose on my own but I love how they all turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I couldn't get the pewter or chartreuse to give me decent colors - it kept coming out way too dark. I finally mixed the color in a jar and then added it to the dye pot a little at a time until I got shades I was happy with.
