Sunday Stash #139

Whereas I did a happy dance when I opened this surprise parcel of fabric, the same cannot be said for the hubby when he heard the words hand dyed fabric.  I think he feared that I might be venturing into the world of fabric dyeing:  solutions, buckets, gloves, masks, powder pigments in every color of the rainbow, and more paraphernalia (which apparently we don't need).  Alas, no fabric dyeing for me. 
This fabric is Seed Catalogue - Annie's Farm Stand by Hollie Holderman, in the White on White colorway (as featured in Sunday Stash #108), and hand dyed by r0ssie.

Brenda (Pink Castle Fabrics) and Anna (Woollykatrecently participated in a fabric dyeing workshop with Rossie and these fabrics are the end result.
The colors are vibrant and the text is still very legible.  What a clever use of fabric!  I am so grateful that I was sent some of these fabrics to work with.  Thank you Rossie and Brenda!

You can see more of Rossie work here:  Rossie's Blog

Hand dyeing this particular print was inspired by Jeni from In Color Order.

Enjoy Sunday!

  7. Oh I am so in love with this fabric! I have the yellow on white. I am wondering if I would get a decent dye result from the yellow on white. I dye wool so fabric wouldn't be much of a jump.

  8. They would be great for pillows. Love your Sunday sets. I now collect the bracelet fabric because of your pics. The colors might work well with the newest pattern I bought too!
