That’s what made me do it. I want to have a blue quilt too. I really love blue and that indigo so deep and intense and beautiful. Yes, I think I need to plan something fun.
We invited a friend, before she started school, and got everything ready for some dyeing fun.
I turned about a yard of a white fabric around a pac pipe, and then around with some rope. I think it was too much fabric for the tube, and didn’t get dyed very much at the end. Just the outside layers. Lesson learned. Cool circles we anticipated.
Cool! It turns blue! Phew…
OK. Can we untie them now? It’s been 20 minutes, right? Can we untie them now? Now?
This is cool!
This is the large piece twisted into a tube with a bunch of elastics in a row. But not centered… it is so neat! I love it!
Some of it was still turning blue. Some spots showing green. They all turned blue and some of it washed off when we rinsed the pieces.
So exciting to see the transformations. I love it! It is so much fun. We had done tie dyeing a long time ago, when the kids were little. But I do love the blue… so beautiful.
And then drying? I could have them out there all the time!
I want to do more! I better go check what other clothes and sheets and tablecloths we are not using and would like some blue. Watch out!
