Having absolutely no dying experience in my past and not wanting to jump in with both feet, I decided to go to Hobby Lobby and get an assortment of different dyes, both brands and colors. I've heard the Procion dyes are the best to use, but I would have needed to order these. I also picked up some Elm Ash while I was there.
My mom and I put on our breathing masks - we were quite a site to be seen on a Saturday night ;) - then our gloves and got to work. While the colors are a wee bit bright, it was so fun that a batch we intended to make three swatches out of, we ended up making nine!!!
Have you ever hand dyed your own fabrics? What did you all think if you did?
We're happy to be linking up with these linky parties today. Thanks for hosting them!
