bundle reveal...

bundled about 2 weeks ago

silk velvet with eucalyptus leaves rolled on a copper pipe and simmered directly in the dye pot

habotai silk in eucalyptus leaves rolled on a copper pipe. top piece was steamed over the dye pot and bottom piece was simmered directly in the dye pot.
Not sure why the leaf impressions did not show up but I'm pretty satisfied with the results.

Working with some cotton pieces right now that are soaking in soy milk. Will be trying red cabbage leaves and beet juice for these pieces.

love the results you achieved!! I have been playing with rust lately and am really enjoying the "unveiling"!

These turned out really well. And now i remember about my avocado. I think it is time to dig it up!

I´m rather satisfied, kind of, to see that green spot - everything I touch lately seems to turn out greenish - which I don´t like when it happens to me, but find quite interesting looking elsewhere...;)

You're a Wizz Deanna! Love the dyed fabric. I still haven't tried to dye anything yet. I'm such a wuss.

Love your buttons by the way' In my younger days I used to make buttons for costumes. Hoping this will go through. Marg. ox

Terrific result Deanna - do you have any idea which eucalyptus species you used? The golden colours are divine.

These are beautiful... Red cabbage is one of my absolute favorites to dye with so far.

Ingrid--i'm not familiar with euc leaves but they were small and round. they were given to me by a friend.
Deb G--i haven't had much luck with cabbage before but i'm trying again.

I love the little thin lines left by the string. What a wonderful rich colour too. I'm also really enjoying the myriad of different gorgeous buttons you made on Karen's course. Fabulous!
