Bubble Wrap Dyeing

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The texture created by the bubble wrap and folds in the fabric. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you want a lot of variation in color, be sure to wrap the fabric in the bubble wrap fairly tight. I simply scrunched up the fabric in the bubble wrap and pressed it into a container then sat a jar on top of the bundle during dyeing to keep it in the dye and stable.
