Project

first attempt at dyeing!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I was skeptical this was going to work, but it totally did and I'm pleased with the results! Can't wait to play around more with colors! Totally worth it--no more repeated trips to the fabric store hunting for the perfect color of fabric, in the future I'm just making my own.

Great colors - absolutely usable - I love aal of them! The purple one has interesting marks, also the last one. Thanks for sharing.
