I was trying to think of dye projects I had done in the past to share-and I came upon this blog where I had shared a few things for a blog event back in 2014 click here to take you to that post-for better reading too
The blouse I had offered in my etsy shop and surprise to me it sold right away along with three other pieces, I still have the woven shawl, I really loved the fiber art piece and it also sold I would like to make more of those.
That piece shown was my first attempt at a fiber art piece, I used quilted blocks that my Mom had made, my own rust dyed fabric, and I needle felted it with wool, cotton, silk noil-allot of fun. This was titled something like bear in the apple orchard. I would like to make one with bear in the pumpkin patch someday.
I had made a needle felted piece also with bears and lots of my hand dyed fabrics that I had framed and kept for me that I love.
The pokeberry yarn was gorgeous up til last year when it really faded but I will still use it someday in a woven piece. Back when I was quilting more I dyed allot of cotton fabrics and enjoyed it allot.
I also really enjoyed flower pounding in the spring and would make stuffed little pillows and give them away for gifts. They will fade though as it is a stain not an actual dye-I has even mordanted the fabric first but still fading-but I really enjoyed the process.
