Jam Jar Dyeing



I have been wanting to dye some fabric for a while, so yesterday, I crammed all these pieces of cotton cloth in a jar with some dye. I mixed up Cerulean Blue on the bottom, stuffed in some wet fabric, sprinkled on some Lemon Yellow, put in more fabric, sprinkled on some Plum and and topped it off with two pieces of batiste weight cotton. I let it sit overnight and rinsed it out this morning. Cool. I am satisfied with the results. I immediately set up two more jars--reds this time.......
