More Fabric

I thought I would share some of the fabric I've been working on for Art & Soul with y'all.  I've been working with some muslin and silk for the last few days, and the results have been a lot of fun.  (For you knitters who are here looking for my progress on Juliet, this fabric will be cut up to use in fabric collage, but I'm starting to think some of these pieces would make wonderful linings for knit purses.)

This is a blue piece, done in a sort-of-shibori, style of dyeing I have been obsessed with for the past year.  This is a natural (unbleached) cotton muslin, that is perfect for this process.

Here is a pink piece done using a modification of the same technique.

And this is my favorite, so far, of the silk pieces, done using my crackle dye technique.

This is a close up inset of the same piece.

This is the perfect time of year for fabric dyeing in Alabama.  The days are cool, with beautiful blue skies and blooming cherry trees and wisteria.  It makes me wish I could take everything outside and dye all afternoon.

  1. Joyce,
    The fabrics you’ve dyed are gorgeous. Are we going to learn how to do this at A & S? I especially love the crackle look.
