Dye Day

Last Sunday I went to a friend’s house to work on a quilt group project and dye some fabric.  I took a couple shirts to dye, but I forgot they were a poly/cotton blend and not 100% cotton.  I must have bought them to paint, not dye.

 

Most of the dye rinsed out of them, but one came out a nice sky blue color.

The fabric pieces are classic red and a classic red/bright blue combo.

 

My friend buys extra large cotton shirts at garage sales and then dyes them and wears them as nightshirts.  I think that’s a great idea.  It will give me an excuse to stop at the sales this year.
