To Dye for!

 The Mother has inspired me to try my hand at dying fabric, and I could not be more excited with the results!!!
 Having no luck finding a yellow fabric for my next project, I decided this would be my first experiment...
 I wanted the fabric to look more like apple cider, so experiment number 2...
 Who knew I even remembered how to work this thing!?! Hahaha
 And finally, the finished pieces! I was in LOVE with both of these pieces of fabric, but after I slept on it I decided to go with the one on the left (I think it will showcase the silvery moon better!).
 Here is my start of Moon & Spider, Apple Cider by Needle Work Press (the fabric really is more yellow gold in person, I need a better camera than my phone!). Stitched on 32ct ODL "Cider" by MMC Designs (also known as The Maiden!)
 What is a girl to do while she waits for fabric to dye? Stitch of course! Here is my start of Raven Queen by Mirabilia
And Toby, who has decided my stitching spot is perfect for napping!

  1. Wow so awesome and so brave to experiment with dying!

  2. Gorgeous, and you're right, it's really hard to find yellow type fabrics, that looks great!
