Beautiful bv :)

I'm always a bit scared about dyeing - you can plan what its going to be like, and to an extent make that plan work. But its only when you take the fabric out of the dyebath and rinse it that you get a true idea of how it'll look - and believe me, overnight is a looooong time to wait in suspense!

I really enjoyed creating this bamboo velour for a customer - a mix of greens, blues and purples blended and contrasted, to create this supersoft squishy fabric, ready for sewing.

In the dye bath....


Rinsed rinsed washed washed rinsed rinsed....now ready to cut out :)


I think it turned out pretty well - not as planned lol! But not far off :)


So here are the finished products - I hope the little guy who these are for likes them - they are soooooo soft!



Thankyou for reading my blog! x
