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.

The first piece is so beautiful. That is a wonderful piece of dyeing and you must be very pleased with the effect you have achieved here. My difficulty with a piece of good dyeing is that I don't want to cut into it and don't know what to do with it. I will be very interested to see what this turns into!
