Fabric Dyeing and Giveaway!

I am also in an exchange with CalendarGirls with Lynda. She is so gifted at working with sheers and really does amazing things with her experiments. Thank you Lynda! Just love it! She also gave me an extra freebie PC. How lucky am I?

I bought some chino dye and worked with adding some fuschia, peach, and golden yellow's to the mix. I think my favorite combination would be chino with a little bit of fuschia and peach added to the mix. As you can see a couple of them aren't really skin tones but they look nice in the mix. Overall, I am happy with the results.

I've also been working on a great little side project I hope to share this weekend. I'm really happy with how it is turning out and I've decided I may also enter it in the miniature category in the local quilt show.

So, now for a give-a-way! I made a lot of skin tones in my experiments. Would you like some? This last picture is what I'll give to the lucky winner. Leave a comment and say you'd like to be entered and I'll draw a name.

Oooh, those are some gorgeous skin-tones and all the others look pretty amazing. I've never tried dyeing fabric and always am in awe of those who do. :-)

You really did do well with your skin tones experiment, it's never easy to create the right colour. I haven't heard of chino dye, I only ever use Procion. You have a great collection of samples, I'd love to be enetered fro the draw :-)
