Tie Dye

The textile course I'm doing includes dye-ing fabrics using procian dyes. These are very vivid colours, and the fabric takes up the dye much better if it is wetted beforehand.

The pattern above was created by rolling the fabric, then binding it
very tightly using cotton crochet thread.

I've bought some white bamboo thread, and look forward to dye-ing it, and then using it for knitting, or sewing.

This pattern was created by folding the fabric. It's almost an x-ray...........
