Studio to Dye For


I'm soooooo cleaning out my studio in preparation for becoming intensely involved in dyeing fabrics. This is something that has interested me for a long time and there is so much to know. This is a little kit of fun things I put together for an ebay auction (forgive my constant commercialism lately--I'm trying to move stuff to make way for new experiments). It looks like it could practically be an art quilt by itself if someone would just sew it down! While I was working on another project, I had some pieces of fabric soaked in Bubble Jet Set, so I printed them out with text/alphabets, numbers etc. Afterwards I quickly overdyed this one. The rest will wait until I know what color scheme I want to use them for, but they are uber easy to do! Bubble Jet is my best friend!
