Hand Dyed Fabrics

I've been trying some hand dyeing recently with somewhat mixed results!!!  Every reference seems to offer varying advice on the process so trial and error has rather been the order of the day!  But the most recent efforts are much much better.  Much more vibrant colours and some lovely variations/patterning.

I tried a couple of colour runs,  by mixing complementary colours with good results.....






I also did a little "jam jar"  dyeing with some very vibrant results......




This technique involves layering fabrics and dyes in the confines of a large jar,  which creates amazing patterns and colour mixtures!

With such good results this time, I'm looking forward to the next opportunity....
