For the Love of Color

I’ve got 26 colors of procion dye and instructions from the amazing Ms. Melody. I’m dangerous now, nothing in my house is safe at this point.

I did the little chemist thing, mixing all the stuff together and loving those colors as they soak into the fabric. I’m working with silk, cotton and linen. Oh, and some white on white as an afterthought.

I’ve got these laid out but they are not dry yet. I wanted some texture and color blending in these and I just can’t wait until they are dry enough to iron so I can see how they turned out. And I have one batch of all the fire colors in the washer and I’ll tell ya, I’m really impatient. I can’t wait to see how it all turns out.


  1. The "fire" colors are now out of the washer and they are SOoooooo pretty! Squeek!

  2. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with all this luscious and colorful fabric!

  3. Who wouldn't want to have all those colours. How great! And the fabric you dyed looks great. I hope it turns out fine after it is out of the wash machine.

  4. Oh I have the same problem when I'm experimenting with dyes. Good luck with the waiting part.

  5. I just love all that color, beautiful!

  6. Oh Carmen! Just dee-vine!! On my wish list is a utility sink for the laundry room which I think will happen within a couple of months -- I am so excited to have a safe place to make a big ol' mess! Where did you do your dyeing?
