Photo Shoot

Photos from my "photo shoot" of the fabric I dyed.  I am including photos of the fabric before it was dyed also.  I used some interesting resist techniques and items.

Dyed fabric with resists
But before it went in the dye bath - it looked like this:

I used two caps (larger and smaller) from pharmacy bottles on either side of the
fabric bundle - held in place with a rubber band.
The rest of the fabric was twisted and held with rubber bands also.
Lots of white left on these two- the may be overdyed later.
The green fabric had one layer of fabric for the circles.  I used five pharmacy bottles
and put the fabric over the top and replaced the caps.
The rest of the fabric was twisted and tied.  
The blue fabric was rolled up with bubble wrap.  Some of it took the texture well, but there was a bit too much of a resist in the center.

This amazing piece was a stitch resist pattern.  I love the way it came out.
Not a great photo but you can see how it looked prior to the dye.

The next two are a scrunch technique. 
This one did not take a lot of the dye. I may have had it scrunched too tightly.
It is possible to overdye this with another color. 

This beauty had three colors poured in to the container with it.
Interestingly none of them was a pink.
I LOVE this one too. 
I have even more fabric in the dye bath today.   Here is the start of another stitch resist. It is not all stitched and bundled and in the dye.
I can hardly wait to see the results on this one.
And here is another that was too tightly resisted. It is now being overdyed.


So until next time - may your life,  your quilts and your weaving be filled with color and happiness.

I can see the results are limitless! Your favorites are also mine, but then a couple aren't "done" yet.
