Listen to the rain

Let it soothe your spirit. Smell the freshness. Hear the patterns. See the cleansing. The way trees and plants drink it in. Feel the renewal.

Bee happy ..... tie dye napkins are finished

Remember my tie-dye pack I received in the post?
 
 
Well I got started on it this week and decided to use buttons of course!

 
I put a buttons randomly in the napkins and then put elastic bands around the fabric
to secure the buttons in place.


 
The dye all mixed up in the bowl with the napkins soaking looked quite pretty.

 
Rinsing the dye off the pretty button patterns appeared.





 
I am really pleased with the results, what do you think?

  1. they are really striking, I might just try that. Where did all the surplus die go, down the drain?
