What a fun day! On Tuesday I drove over to Illinois to spend the day playing with my friend Kathy Sands and indigo dye.
After mixing up the dye bath, we folded our fabric.
Then we dipped them in the dye bath.
After taking them out of the dye, we unfolded them and placed them on the floor to dry.
But besides having so much fun dyeing, Kathy treated me to a wonderful lunch of potato soup and chicken salad. Yum! Look at this lovely place setting. What a treat! The pita wedge is part of one of Dave’s spelt pitas. We love to cut them up and bake them crispy for salad or soup.
When I returned home, I washed my newly dyed fabric pieces in the washing machine with warm water and detergent, popped them in the dryer, and ironed them.
Here are some of my favorite pieces.
This was made by rubber banding glass nuggets in the fabric. In the picture with the tied fabric, it’s the one on the right. Here is a close up.
It reminds me of my ice dyed fabric. Here are more pieces.
Here’s a closeup:
I’ve really saved my favorite for last. I’ve been shopping thrift stores purchasing white cotton shirts to dye. So I dyed one of those t-shirts. I love, love, love it!
What a fun day of playing and visiting! It’s always fun to spend time with Kathy.
Have you ever tried indigo dye? I’d love to hear about your fun with it.
