Sewing With Hand Dyed Fabric
I’ve always wanted to hand dye fabric, but I never make the time to try it. I was thrilled when my friend Vicki shared some of her first hand-dyed fabric experiments with me.
I think these particular fabrics turned out cool as slipcovers for sketchbooks. I made the smaller version (5.5 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide) on the left for Vicki, and I listed the medium version (8.5 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide) on the right in my shop.
I had small squares of the peaches and purple fabrics so I cut them smaller, pieced them back together, and made a little zipper pouch to carry my drawing pencil and pen around with my sketchbook.
Actually, it fits more tools, including a couple more pens and my kneaded eraser. Oh geez, I admit it, I love it so much, I carry it everywhere!
Definitely gotta get more of these fabrics here! There’s nothing better than combining newly discovered fabric and drawing to get me excited!
