Here are some of the fabrics I dyed last week. I love how they came out.
I used PFD (prepared for dyeing) fabric since this fabric does not have any sizing applied to the surface. But it is a very tightly woven cotton and that made it hard to hand stitch throuogh 5 layers! Easier to machine sew.
My friend, Liz Kettle, is the creator of "Stitch Meditation" so I tried her process to create this piece. But next time, I will use more loosely woven fabrics so it is easier on my hands!
