I'm with you - I like the scrunch best also. I think it will work best for my quilts. What was your dye(s) for the teal-green one - I love the color

Probably turquiose an a little bit of golden yellow? Sorry, I get going and don't pay a lot of attention to what I'm doing.

I think some really interesting shapes can be made by tugging, twisting & folding purposefully, then scrunching the remaining fabric, jamming tightly in the container. I've also noticed many unintentional people and animal shapes in scrunchies. Fun.

On some of the scrunches I've added a rock for weight on the fabric and a couple have been banded, also. I think it helps me like them better.

You are getting such wonderful patterning. Th rock is a very cool idea.

I just did a variation on the tie dye banding yesterday with scallop shells with tight banding. They only showed on one side, but came out pretty. Also, I did not want to waste the dye inside the tube so I scrunched and rocked fabric inside. Can really stuff it in there with a rock of the right size or choose which part of the fabric you want to have more or less pressure with the shape of the rock. Will post soon

Next time I use the pole/pipe I'm going to put the dye in gallon milk jugs with fabric scrunches to the sides, maybe the rock treatment also.
