Sometimes you just need a certain fabric for a project that you either can't find or doesn't exist. I have an idea for a quilt using a black background. I don't want to use solid black or a tone on tone. I want something with a bit of color. But most black fabrics with a bit of color are just too traditional for my design.
Why can't I just dye a black and white fabric with a color? I have quite a collection. The black should stay black and the white will pick up the color.
Using my regular method for dyeing, and letting it sit overnight before the washout, I was so pleased with the results.
I used the same dyes to do some thread dyeing. I'll post about that tomorrow with my unique method for obtaining variegated thread.
