Fabric Dyeing and Batiking

I have been having fun dyeing with procion dyes the last couple of days. Since I don't have a table big enough and I didn't want to frame or hang the 3 yards of fabrics I was working with. I decided to lay heavy plastic out on the grass in the back yard with rocks on the corners. You can see that I had some expert help.

I dyed the fabrics a light color first and then batiked.

Then I laid them out again and dyed the fabric. I covered them with a second sheet of plastic and left them overnight.

As you can see the orange one is done from the recent article in the Quilting Arts Magazine using berry box, spools of thread and toilet paper rolls.

The purple dyed fabric I used a iron I had.
