Fabric Dyeing at Home

After some inspiration from last weekend's Fabric Dyeing Workshop, I decided to set up my home studio for textile arts. I got a few yards of cotton and linen in white, and washed out the sizing with dish soap. For color, I'm using Jacquards Procion MX dyes. I took a couple of swatches of cotton, folded them up, and bundled them with rubber bands. Then into the dye for about two hours:


And here they are unfolded, but not yet dry:


This is so easy and fun. I'm looking forward to really exploring this space.
