Last weekend I managed to get my first Stitch To Dye piece into the dye bath. Dyeing is one of those things that can only happen for me on the weekends.
Here is the piece before I dyed it
I will do some things different the next time around. I will mix the dye full strength. I like the way the first piece took the dye, but I don’t want to interfere with process again. What happens, happens.
I will also throw a piece of muslin in the dye bath to use for the sleeve. It’s just easier that way.
Lastly, I will give more thought to how I use white on white fabric. Some of it really stands out, some doesn’t. Good to know.
I do think I got the density of the quilting about right. I’m also glad I waited to add the sleeve until after I dyed it because the bottom is now the top. It looked better that way.
