This is one of the pieces I dyed the other day. It is a piece of an old cotton pillowcase, 15.75 x 59.75. It has a soft fuzzy look about it which I sort of like but then sort of don't. I suppose I should get some nice new white cotton to work on. Something with a high thread count. Anyway, this was fun. First I crunched the piece up in a small container and poured fuchsia dye over it. I also sprinkled on some dry powder. I don't remember what color. After it was processed and dried, I tied up marbles, and/or rocks randomly, a la tie dye. But I always think that is a little boring, so I doubled some of those back on each other, folded, scrunched and tied some more. Then I put it back in the same container and poured Wedgwood blue dye over it. It stayed in the dye for over 24 hours. Can you believe I let it alone that long? At any rate, here it is. It is too much the same value, so I should do something else to it. Maybe stamp it? Hand paint on it? I know I will probably embroider on it! Or maybe I should just cut it into strips and use it in something else. Do another piece on better fabric.
Lisa, if you are listening, what do you think? Anyone else?
