Snow Dyeing Results

I thought these results looked better than the last lot when I batched them up last night and, after a night in the warm, I was not wrong.


 This top one is a shirt sleeve with some lovely stitching texture on it and I've got some lovely runs from the snow.






I like the effects on this broderie anglaise (the bright bit is the ironing board cover)


Finally this is the damask drop cloth piece that was low immersion dyed in a bag.  The computer has shown the blue much 'bluer' than it really is.  The fabrics are all much stronger in the turquoise.  I shall look forward to playing with these!  OK, snow, I've had enough playing, you can go now LOL

Love the colours in these ones Julie, especially number 4.
What colour dyes did you use?

Gorgeous results - real Julie colours! It was worth all that rinsing and ironing again though I'm sure the first batch will add interest to your quilts too.
It has snowed again this evening and we'll probably get more during the night. Like you, I've had enough. It might look like fairyland in the morning but I don't want to live in fairyland.

What fabulous results, Julie, I'd forgotten the effect you get, I love the way the pattern shows through on the damask in the last pic, what a great collection for future projects.

Effectivement, le résultat est très satisfaisant, ces teintures sont superbes. Moi aussi, j'aime beaucoup la broderie anglaise, elle a de jolies nuances. Bonne journée.

Really lovely Julie well done. The colours look so vibrant.

Becky Vigor said...

These have come out beautifully. Did you dye the whole shirt or just the sleeve? I think a snow dyed shirt would look fab :)

Love those colours Julie. If the snow doesn't go you'll be able to do some more! Still no snow here!

I just came over from Denise's blog, so I thought I would say hello. I was fascinated by the snow dyeing, I have heard of it, but not tried it.
I'm off to look at some of your other posts now.
All the best, Kath
