Low-immersion dyeing experiment part two!

Ok so here's the finished results! :-)

the colours aren't exactly true unfortunately, the pitfall of night-time photography..

Batch One
Grape & Baby Blue - Navy & Turquoise
Navy & Baby Blue - Grape & Turquoise

Batch Two
Grape & Baby Blue - Navy & Turquoise
Navy & Baby Blue - Grape & Turquoise

The fabrics are burley knit terry and hemp fleece..
and yes, because i am that stingy i cut out the nappy pattern then overlocked them (badly) before dyeing! lol... they will be made into snappiable pocket-fitteds with matching hemp & microfibre boosters :-D

Oh and a final warning - if you do decide to try this technique be prepared to put up with comments about 'freaking out' and Stairway To Heaven from unenlightened types! ;-)

Oh wow!!! Goegeous!! I've never tried that method of dying before, but am eager to give it a try. Maybe I'll order some Pricion dye for my birthday in a few weeks. :)
