My wall is a sorta non-traditional one I guess.....I am using my dyed fabs today as my wall----The camera washed the brights out a bit, but as with everything there were lessons learned. This time I didn't use salt and soaked the fabrics in soda ash water rather than add it to the dye solution. I didn't soak the fabric in a dye solution, but rather put the fabric into small amounts, squeezed it through the fabric, and then let it "cure" in plastic bags--(you dissolve 2 T. of dye into 4 cups of water and pour specific small amounts into a large dish pan and put your fabric pieces in that---directions from a new book). I really didn't like this method as much. Although the fabric colors look really bright initially, once you wash them, they seem to fade out, although the darks seemed to look better. I also didn't like how this bolt of 200 ct fabric took the dye. I made the mistake of not writing down the type of fabric I had washed and cut up, but the weave looked almost like a synthetic---but I know it was cotton. I don't know where I got this fabric---I don't remember ever buying it--I am sure it didn't look that way when I purchased it last year and prepared it. At any rate, that may have been why the dye didn't take as well. I am going to dye more this week and use the bamboo/cotton as see how that works. I am also going to order more cotton and get some Kona cotton from Joanne's--it always seems to take dye well.
So---my "Design Wall" this Monday are my newly dyed fabric that is truly a "design" wall. Check out Judy's blog to see some great "walls".
Have a great Monday!
