Dyeing Day

Today I've been using up some old Procion dye concentrates from my studio fridge and some dye powders I'd had for a while.
The T shirt above had a pale stain on the front from silk paper making so I decided to tray dye it. It may be a bit 60s hippy looking, but I like it.
Below: some of the results from the concentrates. They were mixed in early January so the results are better than I expected.

Don't you just love to see the newly colorful cloth pieces hanging on the line? They look beautiful in your picture.

Beautiful fabrics. I have been thinking of trying dying but haven't had the courage yet. Still in the reading about it stage...

The t-shirt is absolutely scrummy.
