Fabric Dyeing

Today, I decided it was time to get some fabric dyed. The above photo there are some "parfaits" that I did this morning. I used Dharma's Fiber Reacitive Procion dyes. I layered fabrics in the bottles and added different color dyes with each layer. Ann Johnston does a great job of explaing this technique in her book "Color by Accident".

These are the results of my dyeing. While the weather is nice I will do more as to stock up for the rest of the year.
