Dyeing Day

I had a fabric dyeing day Monday.  I put some pieces on the clothesline and poured the dye over them. I have the dyed toes and feet to prove it.  I needed to replenish olive, aqua greens and blues.  I used a recipe I made several years ago on natural muslin.  This time I dyed on pfd white cotton.  There’s a little bit of difference, but really, it’s a pretty good match. I had new brown I wanted to test…I love it.

I did a parfait, stacking fabrics on top of each other.  The first layer didn’t get much dye transferred from the second layer.

The pink fabric turned out pretty awesome, I think.  Here are two different parts of it.  I am really liking the combination of the orangy-yellow and pink.
