The Art of Cloth Dyeing »
InstructionsI dyed the fabric and then fused it to a black felt backing using Misty Fuse fusible web - the best!! Then I clean cut the edges and cut out the black shapes from felt. I used the Embellisher machine to attach the shapes into the dyed silk background.

What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This isn't as hard as it might look, but it helps to have the right tools. I posted it mainly to give my wonderful students some ideas for how to use their gorgeous dyed fabrics.
