On Monday I spent the afternoon dyeing and sun printing material.
We continue to decrease our use of paper products. I’ve been thinking about all of the kleenex I use after maybe one nose wipe. I have been buying old linens from thrift stores which have included some really beautiful handkerchiefs, but they are usually white. I’m not one who likes white.
I wanted to play with my Setacolor Transparents so I thought it would be nice to try dyeing a couple of those beautiful handkerchiefs.
Here is one before dyeing.
Very pretty on its own, but add some color and the design pops.
Here’s a closeup:
Setacolor Transparents are so easy to use with such great results. I wondered yesterday why I’ve not done more of this sooner. I’ll post my other pieces later on this week. Feels so good to be creative again.
