I received an email from a reader who told me how she wanted some hot pink and black fabric for a quilt. Unfortunately she was unable to find a commercial fabric so she bought some black and white fabric and pink Dylon dye. Well naturally I was curious.
I bought some black and white fabric. Washed it well to remove sizing.
Mixed up some of Dylon’s Amazon Green. There was quite a lot of fabric in this bucket, certainly more than 250g. I needed to be very diligent about moving the fabric to ensure even dyeing.
Now this has got me thinking. I have another project forming in my mind. This could keep me out of mischief for quite a while.
PS: when I first wrote this I could not for the life of me remember who it was who told me about this. Was it one of my buddies from the many forums I'm a member of, maybe a twitter follower? It was in fact Eileen Lau a FB friend. Thanks for the tip Eileen.
