I can now offically say I love dyeing my own fabric. Why? Maybe it is the science geek in me that enjoys the measuring, mixing, and stirring while wearing gloves and a mask. Or the excitement of discovery when you pull the fabric out of the dryer and run to the ironing board to view the colors and textures at there best... when freshly ironed. Or is it the ever growing rainbows of fabric filling up my fabric bins :) I would say all the above.
So here is what my 20 metres of white fabric looks like now. Lori and I have been working together, she finished the rest of our 5th Rainbow last night so I don't have those samples yet. If your wondering were Rainbow #4 is, it is a combination of rainbow 5, 3 and 2. We plan on making 12 rainbows with 12 fabric with 7 dyes. Organization and charts are the key to the planning since we are at the stage were you only need to make 4, 6 or 7 new fabrics to create a new rainbow. Are you confused yet?? Don't worry we know what we are doing...*pauses and thinks*...yes we definately know what we are doing!
