Whole lotta hand-dyed fabric!

hand-dyedAlong with rust-dyeing and ice-dyeing, we also did some regular hand-dyeing this past weekend.

Here’s the results of our efforts, including the rust-dyed fabric at the top. Most of the fabrics began as white or off-white fabrics, but Renske had a couple of black and white fabrics that we also dyed (the striped one looks sharp as a green and black stripe!) Quite a nice variety, don’t you think?

Hand-dyeing is time-consuming, messy work. There’s prep to do before you start, mess while you’re doing it, and more mess and time to rinse, rinse & rinse after the dye has finished. Fun once in a while – but I don’t think I would want to do it on a regular basis.
