pounded fabric plus give away


After a week of (im)patient waiting I could open the plastic bags with the pounded fabric. This is what they look like. I used different textile paints (Trapsuutjies, Setacolor opaque and Probrite) diluted with water. Because paints were used instead of dyes the hand of the fabric changed a little bit. Each piece of fabric is the size of a fq.
As this is my 100 posting I am giving one of these fabrics away. All you have to do to make a chance of winning one of them is to leave a comment behind the coming week. Next Sunday I will pick a name.

Love the pounded fabric. This is different from what I've seen before. I thought it was going to be pounded flowers, and was pleasantly surprised. Thanks so much for showing these fabrics. Diane www.dianeme.wordpress.com
