An old linen teacloth and a little cotton top that my daughter Rose has outgrown..
I had a bit of a play with some orange and black dyes in the studio late yesterday afternoon (after a pretty full day in the garden-phew!) I love not knowing exactly how it's going to turn out…! At first I was a bit disappointed with the spotting that comes from experimenting and not dissolving the dye first but it’s growing on me now... there is some nice shading and variegations.
An old embroidered traycloth - I think linen..
from the top: silk, muslin, cotton(or possibly cotton polyester),
silk, commercially dyed cotton, silk
I threw in scraps and household linens.... linen, flannel, muslin, cotton and silk. I love how they take the dye on differently. I didn't do any shibori or tying of any type this time- just left the pieces scrunched in a tray...
