What materials did you use? Mostly Vintage Cotton Dish Towels. My friend and i decided that although they are not pretty there are areas that can be used.

I have some like these. Call them BU's. Dye 'em again. :-)

I wish I could remember who said this, but it's true. "Dye it till it's black and then discharge it!" I'm still working on the dyeing part :D

I think I'd be afraid of what they would become! :)

With enough dye layers, from what I read, you can start removing some of it to reveal what is underneath, or stamp, paint, print or foil? Ugly won't hurt a thing. You can always put them on the bottom of your stack to find later for a good giggle...

Oh I think if you added a lsmall amount of brown to the two on the right they would look good. I sort of like the two on the left. Try ironing them and see if you like them better. For some reason they always do.
