In the spirit of full disclosure, here are what my scraps look like completely washed and dried:



The purple and yellow were dyes I mixed up that day, which is why I think I got more color there. The blues I mixed up weeks ago, and I got a lot of fading.

And completely by coincidence, there's a natural dye workshop happening in a couple weeks a bit south of me - I'm seriously considering signing up!

134  Yarn Wrapped Necklace with Wood-burned Beads in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Abbeeroad on: October 06, 2015 07:08:58 AM
I made this necklace with some cotton yarn I dyed and some plain wooden beads enhanced with a wood-burning pen.

I wrapped some beading cord with the dyed yarn, making loops at each end for clasp attachment and stringing on some wooden beads. I really love how it came out and will definitely be playing around with this technique more - I have plenty of yarn left!



Here's a close up of the beads:



And a wearing pic for fun and size ref:

135  Wood Prayer Flags in Completed Projects by Abbeeroad on: October 06, 2015 06:56:32 AM
I've been kind of obsessed with my wood-burner lately - I'm seeing every wooden surface as something I can potentially "enhance." Wink

These little guys came out of an afternoon of experimenting with some cheap wooden pieces I picked up at Michaels, my burner (of course), watercolors and stamps, and some twine.



I burned them first, then strategically applied some watercolor paints and stamped the messages in the center. Each flag got three coats with a clear spray sealant and was attached to twine for hanging!

Class: History of Magic
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Dyed Yarn Experiment
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I bought some cotton yarn for a project a long time ago that never panned out. So I decided to take a risk and experiment with dyeing it. The colors definitely muddied a bit, so I'm still on the fence about the success of this one...

Class: Muggle Studies
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Mixed-media Necklace
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I heard that muggles wear yarn, but I wasn't sure exactly how. Certainly not as jumpers like wizards do, right? So I played around with the yarn I dyed to make a muggle clothing accessory. I have the perfect robes to wear this with...Wink
