So lately I've been thinking about dying fabric. Aside from some tie dying in Girl Scouts when I was a young scout, I have absolutely no experience.
I decided to dip my toe (or fabric) into dying by starting with tea dying. Six cheap tea bags, my biggest pot, and a yard of fabric I intend to use as the lining of a bag and I was on my way.
The results were not as dramatic as I hoped, but still more than acceptable for the project. My cutesy, "too red", "too white" fabric is now a bit muted, a bit more mellow, a bit darker.
I think I'm ready to move on to colored dye. Bring on the mess!
