TO DYE – to colour fabric by soaking in a colour/ dye solution…… TO TIE-DYE – to tie fabric up in a way that prevent some colour being taken up, creating interesting patterns through the fabric..

This week I dyed these cream curtains orange & pink to give the lounge a fresh look coming into Spring.

While in the grove, tie-dyed cotton table cloth & dyed cream lace cloth as well.

Tie-dyed top I made. I cut out the pattern & dyed each piece individually prior to sewing it up. I enjoyed this process. I have tie-dyed t.shirts before. I found making the pattern up & dying the pieces individually gave me more creative control over the design.
Have plans to make a dress in this style in purple or red colours
