Crazy for Crazy
The Ruby Red Octagon block has got a black edge.
I have selected the material for the next block,
which will be light teal with peach embellishments.
You can see I have already made some buttons (I will show case them in a later post), and taken out the set of fabric dye I purchased at the quilt festival in Tokyo Dome back in January..
So, what did I dye? Well, the white lace needed to blend in.
To get the shade of teal I wanted, I needed blue, yellow and black dye, a plastic cup, a plastic bag, the lace and water.
A drop of yellow, one of blue and the tiniest drop of black,
then poured into a plastic bag with the damp lace.
The dye was massaged into the lace inside the bag, my hands stayed clean and unstained.
After 20 seconds the lace was taken out to dry
I am very pleased with the result - it was my first attempt at dyeing anything!
For small items this method seems great.
