my creative space...



I'm hoping to not get too distracted today and finish off the few things I have to finish before I can get to play with this dye and chenille. I'm already thinking Christmas stockings and I'm sadly lacking in gorgeous reds. All the pretty red chenille can be quite expensive so I'm doing the next best thing. Taking some of my beautiful whites and making them red. Apparently this dye will dye around 1kg of fabric. Here's hoping!

More creative spaces here.

Look forward to seeing your Christmas stockings. How exciting! Where did you source the dye? I'm keen to get my hands on some dye to colour some doilies that I want to use as part of my gift wrapping for Christmas. Just not sure where to find it.

Wonderful! I'm sure they'll turn out beautifully, although your hands and sink will probably look heinous! Make sure you post pics of how it turns out - I'd love to see :)
