Snow Dyeing - Finally




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.


Soda Ash soaked cloth

Cloth swirled and scrunched

Pack on the snow

Then the FUN part !!!

Looks like a giant snow cone :)

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

10 yards of fabric

A very successfully couple of days, thanks LuAnn, the instigator of all this fun. Check out her blog about our Snow Dyeing Fun.

  1. Hey Kathi,

    Your fabrics turned out gorgeous!
    As soon as I get my ironed, I will take photos and post them on my blog...

  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?
