I don't Sew - What Would I do at the Dyeing Workshop?

il_430xN_69674680One of the fabulous things about this dyeing day is that you can dye anything you want as long as it’s a cellulose fiber – cotton or rayon. My husband’s aunt is a basket weaver and we’ve dyed the reed she uses for her baskets to create some amazing effects. If you are into knitting or crocheting many of the yarns you use can be dyed to be something even more amazing…as long as it’s a cellulose fiber.



I will be teaching a section on ‘tie-dyeing’ techniques. You can il_430xN_48794435use these techniques on either fabric or CLOTHING! You can either bring your own clothing to dye or you can purchase some white cotton clothing from us. We will have things from onesies (all sizes), t-shirts, overall rompers, bubble rompers and little girl dresses for sale.

You will learn a wide variety of folding and tying techniques to get some amazing effects when combined with the dye. I have posted a quite a few images of il_430xN_68755131clothing that I have dyed in the past to show you some examples of what you will be able to create. To see even more visit my website http://www.kimscraftyapple.etsy.com/ and look in the Onesie section, Rompers/Dresses/T-Shirt Section, Hat Section and the Adult Clothing Section.


We will also teach you how to discharge a design onto your clothing once it has been dyed if you desire. To the right I have a picture of a onesie that I discharged a rose onto.


People have brought many different articles of clothing to dye…from baseball hats, to onesies with socks to match to even their husband’s boxers! Be creative and have fun…that’s the whole purpose of the day!
