Hand dyed cotton fabric
What materials did you use?
These fabrics are from a recent play day using fiber reactive dyes. They are 100% cotton. I will use these in quilts and for fabric flowers.
Hi Rose. love the colours. perhaps you can explain the process of doing your own fabrics as a lot of quilters do not know just how to go about doing them. I live in a small town in Australia so we have very little way of these crafts being shown how to do them. .We are over a hundred klms to the nearest large town.Thank you so much for showing us these beautiful fabrics. your quilts must be amazing. Again thank you. Rae
I recommend the Jane Dunnewald Craftsy class on using fiber reactive dyes - I used a bit different approach for these, but her class is an excellent introduction to the process
Hi Rae,I also live in Australia - I just started Jane Dunnewald's CRAFTSY course. It is wonderful.You get all the dyes from "Unique Stitching" .Postage is prompt - get the soda ash from supermarket or hardware store. For reliable water quality use a slab of 600ml botted water from supermarket and mix your dyes in the bottles -no mess. It works out well!
