Earlier this morning - i have been busy dyeing
lace for future projects . I found i had LOADS
of white / cream and i wanted to use them - but
it wasn`t the correct colour. I had read about doing it
yourself - so i have had a go - and with some
great results !
I used food colouring !! So i thought i`d share it
with you ;o)
Here is a cotton piece in a bowl - i just added
a tiny amount of water .. Squeezed it out -
with disposable gloves on - i might add !!
All drying on the kitchen table ..
What some pieces looked like before ....
And the result after .. .
I love the top right one best - a lovely
teal colour ...
I had some blue left in my bowl -
so i added a few drops of red - and viola - purple !!
On a few snippets of cotton lace .
I also tried net lace - and this came out
2 toned blue ;o) I didn`t think it would
take - as it is mostly synthetic -
but it`s trial and error . There are a few pieces that
i wasn`t happy with - so i`m going to redye them .
Later i am trying brown .
