Fabric Day...

Today I went over my friend Maggie's house and dyed fabric. It has been years since I attempted this and I was more than a bit nervous but after a few minutes I just decided to go with the flow and have fun with it.In the end it felt somewhere between High School Chemistry and a cooking class. Lots of measuring, mixing, dirty pans, and surprise outcomes! Like why is it Mary who wore and apron didn't get any dye on her and my trousers look like a 5 year old went wild with some markers....
I think Tom the cat was unsure why we wanted to mess with his nice pile of white fat quarters....doesn't he look like an angel in there!
While Jazz, the Jack Russell, kept an eye on her treat barrel...

How fun is that! Can't wait to see the finished product. I've always wanted to try hand-dying.
Cheers,
