I love this little project so much! It all started with a chunk of PFD fabric that I’ve had in my stash for at least a couple of years. I was planning on just giving it away, but when I got together with my friends earlier this month they encouraged me to dye it!
Each summer we’ve gotten together people have dyed all kinds of fabrics, I didn’t ever jump in. I’m not sure why really, I don’t have any excuses. I was so glad though when I did this time. It ended up being really fun, especially when a group of people do it together. It’s a really great way to try something different. It’s not so scary as it would have been if I had tried it on my own!
Jeni brought an indigo dyeing kit and her supplies, thanks Jeni!!! It made things go so well – being prepared is a good thing, and one that I’m glad Jeni is great at. I wrapped mine up and then gave it a good dunk. Jeni had done this type of folding before so it was easy for me to choose which one I wanted to try and go for. After it was all set I knew I needed to make something with it quick! I figured this pillowcase would be perfect. And it is! I’m so glad I made it last minute on the day we were leaving. Even though a pillowcase only takes a few minutes, I still think I would have put it off. p.s. be sure to check out the awesome stuff Jeni has made from hers!
So yay! I got home and gave it to Emily (her favorite color is blue). Plus I figured I could always steal it from her, hehe, she’s good at sharing. And I probably should have ironed it for these pics, but we’ve been using it non-stop!
