6 fabric dyeing.


This past weekend I had a wonderful time with Jeni, Faith, and Lee!  Lots of sewing, eating, and chatting with friends.  Jeni and I also spent some time on Saturday dyeing a big batch of fabric.  We dyed 8 yards between the two of us!
Jeni brought all of her dyeing equipment with her, included her awesome pink gas mask!  We set up in the garage and used Magenta, Lemon Yellow, Aquamarine, Teal, Deep Purple, and Jet Black dyes, along with two of our own custom mixes to make a dark coral/red orange and a reddish purple (which ended up being not much different from the Deep Purple).
I dyed some Seed Catalogue in White and Frosted Dot from Lakehouse Dry Goods, along with some white Kona.  I'm really happy with how the dots turned out, and the Seed Catalogue print is always great.  The Kona had a lot more irregularity, but I kind of like the texture that it resulted in!
Jeni dyed some really cool prints from P&B Textiles, along with some Seed Catalogue.  The numbers and the rectangle print both looked amazing!
Fabric dyeing is kind of a lot of work, but the end result was definitely worth it!  Now I'm on the lookout for some more white on white prints to use next time!  Thanks Jeni for sharing your dyeing skills and knowledge with me :)


  1. Oh, wow, those turned out fantastic! The blue seed catalogue looks amazing and the Kona is almost like batiks... Beautiful work.

  2. That looks really great! I love the colors... and now blogland is waiting for a post about all the tips and tricks that you could share with the rest of us to give this a try as well ;)

    Thanks for sharing!

  3. They look really nice but I don't really understand the purpose of this. You can buy virtually every color there is aleady done, why go through the work? Am I missing something?

  4. They are great! Did you use the Kona PFD or just plain white? I bought some PFD hoping to try dyeing it at some point. You guys made some lovely, lovely fabrics! I'm glad you had a good weekend!

  5. they all look so pretty and it sounds like you guys had a wonderful weekend! xo

  6. How fun to get to learn from someone who already knows. That makes everything easier! Great results.
