A Green Day

This wasn't planned, but halfway through St. Patrick's Day I realized everything I was working on was green ....

I've been meaning to dye this plain white shirt with Dharma's New Emerald Procion dye for a few weeks now and finally got it done.  It's a gorgeous green and now I have something in the color of the year!  And I was very happy that the threads turned out to be cotton so that they also took up the dye.  See this past post for a tutorial on dying with Procion fiber reactive dyes.

I'm still working on the project I made the crochet thread poppies for - these are the leaves.  I'll have a tutorial for them probably next week!

Happy Creating!  Deborah

  2. This is indeed a lovely green! I love to dye as it gives chothes a second life.

  3. Yeah! That shirt came out great!
