To Dye For

Hello Everyone,

So I have been kind of all over the place, meaning disorganized, with my thoughts and my days. Nothing seems to have any rhyme or reason. Maybe it is just the freeness of the summer days. Speaking of summer, we may actually hit 90 degrees today. They say it will be the first time since April!! Hard to believe that we have gone almost all summer without getting HOT.

So anyway, I have done a little fabric shopping on Etsy and I wanted to share my yummy finds with you.

First up, dyed fabrics from Vicki Welsh. She does some wonderful "tie dye" type fabrics that are just gorgeous! I love the color selection. You must check her out, some really nice choices. Plus, don't forget to check out her blog!

Here was my pick.... what else but pink hues!


Next up is Chris's hand dyed fabric. You can find her fabrics at her Etsy shop Dye Candy. Cute name.... love it!


This time I picked more melon like colors ranging from yellows to of course, pinks. These are not tie dyed they look more solid or suede like. Wonderful selection as well and fabulous colors. Love them all!! Make sure you check out her blog too!


Then I went onto Karen's shop Ruby Mountain Dye Works. Karen also has some absolutely gorgeous hand dyes. Her fabrics are a little more of a mottled or marbled look. Just yummy!
You can see that I chose a color gradation of the rainbow.


She also sent me this little handmade bookmark from her fabrics. I just love it! These are also on her Etsy shop as well.


So if you are in the mood for some yummy fabrics to build into your stash, check these ladies out. They are quite talented and each have beautifully unique products.

I also wanted to let you know that I have added some die cut dresden plates to my Etsy shop. They are in the 1930s reproduction fabrics. I think you will like them!

Until Next Time.....

These are gorgeous fabrics! Did you have a project in mind? or just tucking them away for future reference...

Stephanie said...

Ditto what Shari said? Will you use them in different projects or the same?

Linda said...

Oh what scrumptous colors, I went and looked and I think I'd have a hard time choosing. I'd want them all.

I love all of those fabrics. I have seen Vicki's & Chris's fabrics as I read their blogs but I had not heard of the Ruby Mountain Dye Works does this Karen have a blog also?
