No ugly fabric

When you are a dyer, there are no ugly fabrics. You might have fabric which needs something more. I had a couple of those pieces and I decided that it was time to work on them. Unfortunately I cannot show you how they looked before, but this is how they are now:



The top one was a folded and clammed shibori with too much white. I overdyed this with orange and red. The second one was a snowdyed fabric which had been in the pooled dye for too long so not much pattern was shown on the fabric. I overedyed this with red as well.

dyeing

I use a lot of green fabric in my work and my stash was getting low. Time to schedule a dyeing day. Besides a gradation and some parfait I also dyed these 2 fabrics:


This was done while the fabric was folding lenghtwise and then a cotton thread was tied around it. The pattern is very subtle.


And for this one I tied kumihimo bobbins and buttons in the fabric before I poored the dye powder over it and topped it with ice cubes. I took this picture during the melting:

For both pieces of fabric I used deep navy and golden yellow. And as it is Friday I am linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday.
