Dyed cotton pieces to suit a carnival atmosphere

The heat of our summer weather (36 degrees today) makes it perfect to play with dyeing.   My studio is out of action so its downstairs into the dyeing room where I must be.

I have just dyed these cotton sateen pieces with a combo of Procion MX and Drimarine thickened dyes.   As I have a challenge to meet with a carnival flavour (more information about this later), I let my hands and mind go like wild fire, to create these background pieces.

The next stage required is to choose one piece and begin work on it – probably handstitch given that most  of my “ingredients” are stacked away until completion of the studio renovations.

  1. Beautiful. Very exciting which fabric you will choose.

    I think the last one really captures the carnival atmosphere. I like all of them and they each have a different sensibility but I’m voting for “celebration”!

    Thanks for your thoughts Jennifer. These were fun to create, now its down to some “work” to produce something good.
