home-made dyeing

Pentru ca afara ploua si ploua ...deci " no gardening", mi-am umplut timpul vopsind niste materiale pentru quilting.
As outside is raining and " no gardening" , I home-made dyed some fabrics for quilting.

Am vazut metoda aceasta intr-unul din albumele Smarandei asa ca pus-o in aplicare ;))
I see this method in one of Smaranda's photo I must try it !

prima tura a fost ocru : sofran 300 gr + hirtie creponata
First batch was OCRE : 300 g shafran + yellow coloured wrinkled paper+ salt

After first batch was out I added some RED and got ORANGE :

The following piece is the result of the wrapping-method that I talked about at the beggining...just wonderfull!

And here are all toghether with some also dyed sheep wool ( resulting felt)( a friend told me that it seems to be like clown hair...what a GOOD IDEEA, isn't it ?) know: I can't be stopped ( nor from dyeing or from calamari with shrimps ;))) )
I'm waiting for some GREEN to cool down...anxious...and happy.
Untill tomorrow...
