Well..today l am back to being positive...no more listening to unhelpful comments.....! Move on and back to being positive!!!
Begining my recording....yes me recording and in it's own book!
This is the colour after boiling the dye for 2 hours before the fabric is added.
Mordanting fabric in just vinegar at present.
Here are some results from my recent dying experiments. If you look carefully you will see some stitching in a flower shape!
Love the dark patterns that clamps have made on this cotton piece.
Some interesting marks on here that l can add stitching and other decorations to.
This is a bit of the pattern from a linen jumper l dyed with Ecucalyptus leaves..it is looking great l am pleased to say. I have yet to decorate it with stitching.
This next piece is a gorgeous piece of felted wool, dyed with Ecualyptus leaves bundled and boiled in the leaf dye.
This is a piece of eco-dyed vintage top ( saved the bits that were not rotten!)which l then embroiderd. I really enjoyed creating this.
Bad image..grr...anyway all these buttons are found or selvaged from junk stalls and charity shops or given to me. I love buttons.
