Snow Dyeing - Finally




SNOW

plus

 
DYE




It finally snowed here , and my wonderful neighbor invited me over for a impromptu Playday. We had to jump at the chance, it does not snow very often where we live. We have been waiting for a couple of years to try it. We have been familiarizing ourselves with the Dyes the past couple of months, so all we had to do was scrounge up some containers. And Hurry and use some of this Snow before it disappeared before our very eyes.

Cloth swirled and scrunched




Pack on the snow

Later after a rain




and wind storm that took our power and water out....

The water is back on and I am ready to rinse

  2. Oh my gosh! I have never wanted to dye my own fabric, but after seeing this I REALLY want to. What kind of dye did you use?
