Dye Projects – December 2014

Dye Projects – December 2014

My dye projects this month were pretty exciting for me.  I tried new methods and work with different dye blanks.   Every wash out was like Christmas!

I made a few more scarves.

My favorite blue ombre linen scarf:

I thought this was our Qwirkle game bag when I dyed it.  Can you imagine my surprised reaction when I found the original white cloth bag in the Qwirkle box when we opened it?

I love the results I got on this bag I wish I could repeat it on a shirt.

My towels in earth tones last month were very popular so I made another batch, here are a few of my favorites:

I also dyed more red towels to go with a table runner for one of my aunts.

These are the same shades of red, it is the difference in lighting.

A friend asked for blues, greens and purples.

I dyed bamboo socks this month for the first time.  They are a lot of fun, but suck up a lot of dye!

  1. These are gorgeous. Can I order some bamboo socks? My granddaughters would love a pair. Any color except pink. I don’t need till this summer.
