Are you tired of indigo pictures yet? Because I’m not done. Here are some experimentally tied up flour sack towels.
I’m late to jump on the flour sack towel wagon. I had never heard of them but they rock.
They’re very absorbent so great to dye and to dry messes, too.
This is Janet, she kept me company.
I had to wake the dye vat up, it was a couple of weeks old. I added boiling water and soda ash and got this fabulous sickening yellow-green. That’s what it’s supposed to look like.
Here I was trying to get a picture of how the dye didn’t read some of the fabric touching the bottle. This is my favorite technique, just wait till I show you the result.
This one, I folded into eighths the long way and then put rubber bands around it. I’m kinda “meh” on it, too much white.
While this has lots of white too, I love it. I folded it about into triangles and then put rubber bands around it.
I know I took a picture of this whole napkin but I can’t find it so here’s a corner. I just dyed a solid blue.
This on I used a rectangle on one side and a gear shape on the other. I love it.
This scarf is the bane of my existence. Just sayin’. It’s my third time trying to dye it in a way that makes me happy. I love the design but silk just doesn’t take dye the same way as cotton. Actually, I shouldn’t be so mad at it. I’ll just keep trying and next thing you know, I’ll be rocking dyeing silk with indigo.
Tada! My favorite. This one was tied around the bottle. I love it!
A fine afternoon. Plus, I painted some random colors onto the chicken coop while waiting for the indigo to cure.
I plan on just adding colors to the coop whenever I feel like it. That way I won’t be painting the inside of my house all different colors (which I’ve always wanted to do but never have for my family’s sake) and everyone is happy.
