The Art of Cloth Dyeing »
Type of item: Home Decor
What was your inspiration?
Jane Dunnewold's Craftsy class.
What are you most proud of?
Being patient enough to wait for it to batch for 24 hours and some of the results are brilliant.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I was not able to get the same dyes here in Ireland - I have to order them online which will take a little time. In the meantime I used Dylon dyes. I made up the water with salt and extra washing soda and then followed Jane's directions by adding a teaspoon of colour to each mix. I used jam jars as I have a lot of those. I then put lids on the jars and put them on top of my range where they stayed nice and warm overnight. This was great fun and I can't wait to get the Procion MX dyes to try. Thanks Jane!
