Stitching Blogger's Question of the Week

Stitching Blogger's Question

Have you hand-dyed your own fabric? Why or why not? Would you like to try to do so?

This question made me rummaging through my fabrics collection coz I remembered I did coffee-dyeing before. It was merely experimental when I coffee-dyed the fabric last time. Coffee-dyeing & tea-dyeing will give an antique & country look to the fabrics. I think samplers and country stitching (e.g. Jeremiah Junction designs) will look great on these coffee/tea-dyed fabrics. I have't try using the dye (colourant) yet. I've actually bought a purple colour Dylon. Planning to dye some fabrics with the Dylon colour after I finish my UFOs.
