I got this great new book a while back-
So, when I decided I was going to dye some fabrics for the back of the Denver quilt I've been working on, I pulled it out and looked through it for the colors I wanted and set out to dye them.
I tore up some half yard pieces, got the dyes and other stuff out and started measuring. It seemed like a lot of dye, but hey, its been a long time since I dyed any fabric.
When I put the fabric into the bags it looked really dark....hmmm.
Maybe I should look at the book a little closer and actually READ it.
Oops, I did do it wrong. Don't get me wrong - it's a great book. I just didn't actually read all that I should have before I dove in.
I did use waaaay toooooo much dye. I tried diluting it, but it was too late, the dye was already into the fabric. Oh, well.
But, it turned out beautiful, but it's darker than I wanted.
